good to see people have taken an interest in this thread idea. the way i see it is its harder to find a stock dr than a moded one, some people would see this as the bike having numerous faults. it is however quite the opposite.... the stock dr is the perfect mon-fri commute and w/e trails bike, the thing is most dr riders prefer to hit the trails mon-fri hense the mods

Count me in...Don't worry about listing other forums for DR's, there is a lot of useful information we can find and bring back in so if you have a resource, post it for others...God knows we don't have all the answers...Here is one I use for a lot of tech help on my DR 650. It also was the forum that brought me here to follow a story about Snowrider...ride from WI to Alaska on his DR.

Run a piece of film through them before you do anything. This has worked for me on the dr650 and the kdx.

FatWife and I are taking our two DR650s to Moab for a three day weekend (leaving Friday AM) and will take a bunch of pictures on the White Rim Trail on Saturday in honor of the new DR thread.

So far: 4.9Gal. IMS tank, Spitfire shield, bar risers Corbin seat, skid plate, Dirt Bags, Still waiting on the luggage rack ordered from the dealer the day I bought the bike so I can mount my JC whittney small top case, battery tender plug so I can run my tire pump. Still fairly cheap compared to say an F650 and will be better off the road.

That one is definitely a KEEPER for all DR650 pilots and wannabees. In fact, if anyone knows how and could pull it off, some sort of Album of the pictures in that thread would be Utter Uber-Magic

You go Zapp! I'll keep an eye out for ya on any DR's I see...

Laugh I Agree

Don't read near enough stuff on my bike. Anything I can learn... Gotta find a better way to carry luggage than my backpack and duffle bag strapped to the rack (although, to be fair, it works better than it looks.) Gotta find a good set of tires... Any thoughts on the Kenda's? With about 3400 miles on my death wings what prescious little traction I started with is disapearing by the mile... Any other cool stuff I gotta get? Let me know, I'm a spunge (pretty sure that's spelled right, but for some reason I'm getting a different feeling about the word then I ment to.....)
Anyway, I'm all up for the DR thread.

I find that at any moment I am not riding my DR, talking about it incessiantly makes it that much easier to justify spending more money on it!
