The DL is definitely more of a street bike than the DR....which is more street than the DRZ which is more street than the DRZe which is more street than the RMX was..... which was more street than an RM..but the DL is still more dirt bike than a GL.

btw...I have NO clue about this current TAG
Well, I guess I should have said it's too boring of a ride, not too far. Not that my DR doesn't mind the interstate, it's just not that exciting.

Funny you should talk about "mudballing". We definitely had some mud on the DR today, and yup, mudballing sure is fun!

Knybanjo, you have the right idea. Ride the DR to bike week, and grin as you pass the guys in the pickup trucks towing their shiny chrome bikes. A bike's for riding, not for towing, right?

I guess one person's mudball bike is one person's street bike and vice versa. After 5 months of ownership, I had over 4300 miles on my DR200 when I traded it in, and most of that was street. It may have looked like a dirt bike with lights, but for me it was my everything bike.

I just found THE PERFECT TAG ...and it's gonna require a long boring ride to get it!

But I WILL go get a pic of my bike there, someday, somehow.

I just don't think that I'll be able to stop myself from posting the pic "out of turn"..it's that funny!

Might even just ride down there to see the place on a breezy day.
Moterbiker deserves the credit for the pick. And, sssshhhhh, don't be giving away all the clues. ;)

OK... ... maybe I need to dash back home in the morning and get the bike and go move it again. Any suggestions on the direction it needs to go??
