Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

Great adventure & great report boys!

One question, the DR650 is not a small bike and I know it loaded to the hilt and a bit but you must be pretty tall to have your feet comfy on the ground.


Well done.

Thank you for the report.
But I could not read it because it was black on black. It really hurt my eye.
Can you kindly change it to white letters or somthing easier for old fart like me to read.

Nice ride!

Thanks for sharing the pics....do you have any more?


My wife and I have the same bike combo as y'all...except we're "up above" not "down under"

(a little bit older too...shhh)
