In the description it says it was his father's bike, and he was away on vacation. Probably took it without his permission.

I'm wondering if the father had taken it apart and then placed everything back on it. The way the tank and tail came off, it looks like it wasn't even bolted on. And there's no side fairings either.

I cartwheeled a DR650 across a ditch at 50MPH and didn't yardsale bike parts like that.

I feel for the guy, it is a nice bike, with some repairs it should be good as new.

i think the vid was fake. it looks like the body kit was not even bolted down. and th tank had now pipes fitted and no fuel leeked out. and you can see he put the stand up.

I don't see any left hand turn. Most kickstands will just drag, not flip you. I think he just hit the curb all on his own. 36 seconds of putting his gloves on...{yawn}....+ camera pointing down too far The walk of shame while grunting and moaning was a nice touch.............
