Rode the dr650, drz400sm and the dl1000. Could not get used to hydraulic clutch. Loved the Dr compared to wr on the road at least. Even the drz feels more powerful. Need more power.

Bill your ride looks alot more of a handful than ours, especially on big bikes. Our ride was a cake walk compared to that, even got up to 50 on some stretches. Not gonna try that in the snow.
