I just bought a DR750........

I've wanted one of these monsters for a long time. Something in between the 640 Adventure and the R100GS. It comes with aluminum bags, too.

Wheeeeeeeeeeee...............going to ride it 1500 miles home, too. I'll be coming through NY, maybe see a pal in NH for a day, maybe a day or two in NYC, then to Frederick, MD, then the 900 mile rush home to Gaspipe country in west TN.

Looks like it is in really nice shape. Does it do 205 mph?

I have always like the look of the big DR's, looks like it is set up pretty well too. The 'Desert Express' sticker on the front guard alone would make it worth owning.

What's it say on the side panel? I can't make it out with the glare, but it doesn't look like "750" to me???

The side panel says DR BIG. Under Suzuki, on the gas tank, it says 750.

DR BIG....isn't that some kinda 007 thang?
