MotoXotica hooked me up with 1 of these bad arse TE 630's! Only been on it for about 1/2 hour so far and I can say it's the best DS I have owned!

Thumb TE 630 testride in Darwin

Took a 630 out for a decent testride recently & loved it. Lovely on the highway with it's wide ratio box & tall 6th gear & was great fun offroad too. You can really throw it around. All it needs to be the perfect midsize adventure bike is the large safari tank, barkbusters, free flowing mufflers with associated tune, setting suspension for rider & a bashplate (maybe a steering damper?)- as well as the usual UHD tubes, tyres of choice removel of any unwanted ancilliary bits etc. It felt like a mountain bike compared to my 950 ADV. I want one!

Where did you find a 630 for a test ride in the Top End?
At Precision motorcycles in Darwin - they are a honda dealership but sell husky's as well. I believe they've already sold a couple of 630's.

Took your advice. Ordered the handgaurds along with the taller risers and cr high bend bars last week, installed them today. Very nice quality, solid, fit great. The added hight is much more comfortable

I absolutely love mine! I went a litttle nuts and have the ipod control/key locator, powerlet, custom engraved top clamp and a vapor dash. I also have the LED turn signals front and back & I really want to hook up a radio just so I can have the PTT buttons even though I have no-one to talk to and I REALLY want the lights even though I can't figure out what to connect them to

I ordered the turn signals as well but there's a bit of a wait on those.
Lots of options for the dashboard but i don't have any electronic goodies yet.
I hear they are working on a protector/mount for that new trail tech gps/computer thing, that sounds interesting to me. I don't find the stock dash overly useful.

Easy! TE630...100lb lighter, about 12 HP more uncorked, 6th gear wide ratio, fuel injected + Safari tank is larger than KLR IMS tank= longer range 630; 630 has better suspension, better brakes.

When are you doing a demo day? I'll let you ride a YZ490 powered CB550, if you die I get to keep the 630.
