Yoko/et.al - wondering what you are running for tires, mine came with newer Pirelli Scorpion ATs, they are primarily street tires and run great on the road, not so good on the trails. I, however, ride about 50/50 and would like more dirt friendly tires. I would put straight knobbies on except they would last about a month. Know of any good compromise?
ps - I had a DR650 years ago, and like the xr250l better. And I am 6'3" and 250lbs. I stiffened up the rear pre-load and had the Mrs on it this weekend....quite doable for short runs!
