Bump for the DR650 picture thread

Took a few pics of the bike today and thought I'd compare it to when I bought it. So, here goes...

This is the day I brought it home. It's an 02 that I bought last year with a little over 300 miles on it.




And a couple shots from today, a year later, a few thousand miles and a bunch of tinkering.




Tons o' fun.

Here's my '02 that I picked up a few years ago. It served as primarily a trail bike for the first couple years, and has been doing commuter duty for the last two, as well. No major hauls yet, still need to add some farkles & accessories...

The only change I've really done is to try and break up the all-yellow color scheme of this model year. Conspicuous and camo all at the same time :)

Your Dr's bad ass. Has an urban madmax vibe to it. Are you running 17's front and rear?

Why did you switch to the 19" front over the 17"? I just bought a 19" front and am always looking for feedback.

Im running a 19x2.5 front and a stock 17 rear. Perfect for the type of riding i do.

Bought it with the 17's and honestly, I thought they were kinda overkill on the big girl. Fun around town but sacrificed most of offroad handling. So I went with the obvious compromise. Turned out spot on for the riding I do. Love how it handles on and off road. I'm building this as a sport/adventure/touring bike.

That bike is simply "CLEAN"
Makes me want to add another DR to the garage , would make the dirty girl that is parked there now jealous.
