This one is for the guy that called drs pigs. I say he is full of bull and is one of these.
I also challenge him and his ktm to who can go the longest between oil changes.

DRs are a little bit pigish but for a bike capable of doing 1,000+ mile days fully loaded with camping gear plus get you where you want to go OFF ROAD with all that gear I'd say they are lean and mean dual sport machines.

I'm trying to burn through the tires I have on mine before I head west. Took the DR off into that muddy hell hole course of trails in east Raleigh that you and I went down that one day Kent - the one you buried your DR up to the seat in muddy water on - this time, and yet AGAIN ON STREET TIRES.

Laid the bike down several times as I spun the rear all over the place trying to get traction.

But the DR is light enough to easily pick back up and hop on when it goes down. Due to lack of traction on street tires I actually had to lift the bike up and carry it out of a mud hole

Can't be much of a big pig if a guy my size can pick it up and carry it out of a mud hole --- just saying Rugby

That is sure a light big pig if I've ever seen one.

Maybe the current tag, being buried in Durham, will bring out some of the western triangle taggers

If it sits for very long I might just go get it and bring it back east to a Wendell Restaurant.

You couldnt even tell by the pics that its been down on its right side twice in the past three weeks, once was on the way to get those tags! I appreciate the compliments Benny. I really like this one. Only one I liked more was my XP that I sold to SIRVAIT. I aint heard from him in a while so I hope hes still enjoying it and not working countless hours.

Flash, I was really torn between a KLR and a DR650 or DRZ when I was looking for my KLR. Only reason I bought the KLR was price and the HUGE gas tank, which I didnt think of at the time but added a ton of pounds to an already heavy bike. Both are light compared to the Uly for sure!!!!!

I'll bet none of you would think your bikes are pigs after one ride on my Honda...down a couple miles of loose dirt/gravel...like the time Erik and I grabbed the Tag at the Flat River bridge...then at the end of that gravel/dirt the path was single track for a few more yards...Remember that one Erik? And Chad I would have never guessed the bike had been down...you didnt have to spill it out...LOL BTW...I know nothing...
Heres proof that I'm nuts...but I was just followin Erik...oh and FWIW it took me twice as long to get down there as it took Erik...

I'll bet it was fun getting the ST turned around on that gravel Ben.
I'm not mad. Just poking a little fun at Rugby.
I do have a Hog I ride too.
Payback got me today tho. Didn't rugby post his bike
and truck both run hot?
My daughter and her boyfriend were going to the beach for the day
this morning. They made it to I40 and his 98 dodge
overheated. I had to go get them. The plastic fill tank
Has a hole in it. We found one at dodge in Garner for$86
I sent them to go get it in her car.
It's raining to much to go to the beach anyhow.

hehe

I do love the DR, I miss mine fairly often. Specially now that I live so far from work.

But the DR off road while it will go everywhere, it's NOTHING compared to a KTM 450 for offroad capability.
220lbs or so vs 340lbs ish is a HUGE difference.

Since I seem to barely have time to ride short dirt trips, having a bike that I can go camping with isn't needed.
