it doesn't have the "soul" the 750 had
a lot of us live with that regret bro

im loving the XR but dam i miss the BIG

Thanks mate, she's in good nick, just a crack in the beak & vertical scratches on the right hand decals where it fell over once.


Been a while since I've ridden a thumper, brings back fond memories of teenage years long ago.

I drove the Peer Gynt Vegen two weeks ago! Good Road, but the view you get from this road is nearly just forest..., Old Stryn mountain Road, and the Aursjøvegen! Search for Mårten Leikarnes on youtube, I have some gravel vids on the tube, more to come during this week!

Guys, I am selling my BIG.
DR800 SL model, meaning DR750 body, DR800 engine.

Any takers?

Asian buyer preferred, unless buyer doesn't mind the shipping fees to Europe.

:(

so... i kind of hit a car. I was doing 90-100km/h when suddenly, the care coming towards me decided to turn back... I hit the brakes as hard as I could and pulled to the right but I ran out of asphalt and I chose to hit the car instead of going in the ditch . I am perfectly fine wish I could say the same for the bike.
Strong bike... the car (Skoda Fabia) was really messed up
