Yes, it was the DR650. Only comfort modifications are aftermarket seat, small windshield and 16 tooth front sprocket. After 4 or 5 hours of riding, there was no longer any use for the word "comfort" in describing the remainder of my ride. I was just very commited and focused and willing to endure the situation to buy a couple of extra days of dirt riding.
Thanks Hardroad. I have the 16 tooth already, just could use a different seat I guess.
There is something about the seating position or handlebar position that is a bit off for me compared to a 2009 KLR650 I sat on, but for the life of me I can't figure out the difference(s) to try to alter the DR650 to make it more neutral.
