I've been having adventures of my own and have not had time to keep up with yours, but I do have a bike question.
One of the bikes I'm shopping for is a DR 650. Almost all of my riding is above 5,000 feet where engine-cooling air flow can be thin. Given that the DR doesn't have liquid cooling, have you had any issues related to overheating?
