I've never been able to get my toe under the shift lever. I have to catch it with the edge of my boot. I only wear a size 8 boot.

I'm just to lazy to do it. I bought my VFR800 with a fender eliminator kit on it. And it made a huge difference in its looks. Back to the DR, I put the handle bar risers on it yesterday. What a huge...

I had a great dislike for the factory "death wings" on my first long off road ride. But, by the end of trip I accepted them for what they are. Pretty much about a 80/20 road/dirt tire. I probably...

Funny how sand doesn't seem that bad when someone else is riding on it! I'm not real fond of the stuff. It sure doesn't look that bad in the video. My DR front tire noses into the sand and I run out...

I think they all have the straps. The '07 and '13 do. I never understood how it's possible for a passenger to hold it. And if they did, they would have to be a very intimate friend. [emoji6]

I'll have to let you know how they fit. It doesn't say it specifically fit's the DR200. But, it's for 7/8" bars.
