My fourth DR650!

Some people never learn! I never should have sold the first three!

It's a 2012 with only 2,700 miles and over $1,600 in accessories! (I'll be selling the Happy Trails SU racks and tail plate, windshield, and headlight guard, btw...)

As I sit here and wait for new fuel lines I'll post this one from an after work ride a couple of months ago.

Ok, I think I'm done spending money. Every month its something else. God, I hate this bike. I have 5 other bikes that just sit now, thanks to it.

Hahaha I know the feeling!! I picked up a new (to me) 2012 V-Strom a month ago so it's gotten 99% of my attention and money since then. Fortunately, my DR650 is actually "done" mod-wise, at least until I do the 790 kit one day. So it's ready to go whenever I need it... and I'm planning a trip with it in two weeks.

Oh, I've already gone broke spending money on my DL, my KLX, my KX, my XR, and now this DR.

And I've gotten used to the free cheese...except it melts 'funny'.

new DR

I've been lurking the forums for quite some time and was convinced to sell the old 74 bobber and get a dual sport. Settled on the DR and cant be more happy.
Heres how she sits



here's what I sold to get her.


I've got a ton of plans for the DR. Just ordered the Wolfman Side Racks and have a few pelicans laying around for them. Then I'll be doing the exhaust, intake and carb work, a 5.3 tank, and probably some 606 tires. All comments are welcome.

Thanks to all on the forum for the wealth of info.

Long story short... after almost 5 years of a love-hate relationship with a KTM950S, I decided to get a bike that will be here long after I'm gone. It's got everything but a pipe and a shock. FMF and Cogent on the way. Will fix fueling to my liking this winter.

I took it out yesterday for the first time so I could ride it where I like to ride and found myself having a great time. 60 miles of dirt another 40 of country lane pavement. I like this bike! It's my new go to machine.
