Are we referring primarily to engine size or physical size of the bike? I can agree regarding engine size, especially when loaded, and I'm looking at the Super Tenere for the future.

If we're referring to physical size, most of them seem to be 'basically' the same size and seat height as the DL650.

I actually researched those prior to buying the DL650. They are very beautiful machines indeed!

you can't have tried a KTM 950/990 and still think the same as a Wee.

Too good a day not to ride somewhere - and I need some more test miles on the motor I swapped into the F 650 anyway.

So here's the tag of the NASA Radar Dome. It's on SR3 north of the Haulover Canal.


It's been something like two years since this bike has graced a tag, or any photo actually. Good to have it back on the road again.

I'll probably go out tomorrow and find a replacement tag for it.

No sir, I don't mind you asking at all. I'm only 5'19" tall and I weigh about 270 pounds.


In order not to get our tag-o-rama thread too far off track, I've started a new thread to discuss my options for a "big boy's bike." Let's meet over there and discuss my height, girth, and bikes that you folks think would work better for me. The thread is at http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...4#post18096734.
