Top of the South Island at Picton (New Zealand). It is a "different" route from Picton to Blenheim along the eastern coast. Sorry it's such a crappy picture - the original is much more detailed but I havent worked out how to do that yet.

It looks a lot like the Port Underwood Rd, is that the one?

I'm not preparing my DR like this, but I'll be doing similar deal with my TW200, maybe someday when confident enough on the DR in isolated areas I will.
I had 2 petrol jerries on the back, 22.5L (approx) each. I carried the water in an 8L soft container in the bag on the back plus a 2L camelback. One of the jerries got punctured by stick on the first day of the canning stock route. The soft container got a hole one day short of well 23.

I managed to get a replacement jerry at well 23 and picked up some spring water bottles as well. The second half of the canning trip I relied on water from the wells.

Joined the bright side today :-)

Hello Oz / Kiwi DR650 lovers,

Methinks (and hopes) that I've joined the bright side today. I went from one in a crowd (the 3 Tasmanian Lemmings, from the left #2 - Justin, #3 - me, and #1 - Dan) ...

... to this ...

2003 DR650 with 9300km on the clock, already christened 'The Lemon', accidentally found at the local dealer on Saturday.

Now happily parked in the garage next to Susanne's GS500 'Bluey'.

Stock standard xept for Ventura Rack and my beloved shopping basket(cheap and excellent for commuting/shopping on the way, easy to put on/pull off the rack with a few holding straps attached).

This sounds reasonable to me....

"SUZUKI DR650SE, 2006, 850km, never offroad, suit new buyer, 12 mths manufacturers warranty $6800 ono."

Think I'll go look and offer $6200. I'm not in a hurry so I'm not that bothered if I don't get it.

Agreed

I've decided to sell the KLR and just have a DR, on condition the DR I test ride can do the business commuting like the KLR does. There's no point in using one bike for commutin and one sitting in the shed just for dirt rides because I don't go on the dirt every weekend.

Don't worry - along with everything else, the DR is a fantastic commuter.
