I would'nt call the 990 a perfect desert weapon but they will do it !
I never regret owning a DR but love my 990 and will put up with fighting them over the sand because they make up for it on the big transports!!

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!"

DRZ400 i reckon. With all the aftermarket we have to make them comfy, they're light, solid reliable, good economy, they're cheap, and have decent power. Can hold a decent amount of gear. Unlimited aftermarket.



There's quite a few out there now RTW touring on them, i have another one i'll be setting up for the simpson.
