Thanks for all the replies. I think I will give the D606's a try. Up North is Northern Minnesota. MN recently made it super easy to get a plate.
On order and arriving next week:
Baja Designs DS Kit. Hope its real nice because it cost a lot.
Shoei Hornet DS (white)
14T 48T for better rode drivability
DID chain, anyone try an o-ring chain? I read some where they will not fit these bikes.
