570 Berg

It has a Force skid plate with built in tool box. No long rides, but based on fuel consumption so far bike should be easy to go 450 Km.

Welcome to heaven. Most of the riding we are doing is better suited to the Drz400. I head to Canada for three weeks, but will be looking forward to getting out when I get back. Keep in touch.
