I will confess- its threads like this that keep me from being in total despair about picking up a DR650. While I like the bike, im afraid as a n00b it might not take me the places on my alaska trip next year I need to go. Id like to end up in the boonies of colorado and such- not at a mx pace- just get there. I got a sweet 08 with 6700 miles on it and already about 1.4k in farkles, but the way everyone makes it sound, the DR wont make it in the rough stuff. Im starting to seriously wish I had a wr250r, but I didnt know it existed when I got the DR. Sorry for the rant- I immensely enjoyed this report AGAIN (read it all the way through twice now) and it gives me hope that all might not be lost for my similar trip..
