I've only riden the DR650 once, and that was with Kyle spooning me, and both our gear. So, that experiance doesn't count.
Based on my experience (which, sadly, was one up), they're significantly less top heavy than the KLR and a bit lighter than my XR ~ Even though the DR and the XR have a similar design, the Piggy's problem lies in its overall height... which isn't an issue for the DR since it's made specifically for midgets and women. Pick your choice, DR riders

So, hey, when are we gonna get a (small) war party together and attack the Beef Trail?
