I also won't be testing it out that far for sure.
I went out with a little spin locally with Jackpiner57 on my KLR yesterday. I've been divided between bringing the KLR for comfort or the DRZ for trail ability. Now, Tom is a much more experienced dirt rider than I am, but his DRZ sure made the rough stuff look easier. I think that 100+ pounds less weight would make things a whole lot more pleasant. Shame they had to put Newfoundland so far away, though. Getting there on the DRZ could be an exercise in endurance.
