Yes, I'm a Happy Man because of four fantastic children and an incredible wife. That little fella graduated from his JR50 this year to an RT100. My little girl is now riding the JRFiddy. My youngest climbs on the JR all the time and makes motorcycle noises. He just makes me melt.....

Corbin uses their own pan which I understand is metal and heavier.

I've got a Sargent on my Beemer and love it. I contacted them and they will build one for my DR. If it's as comfortable as my World Sport on my RT it will be worth the money. A little over $300. They've been a good company to deal with as well as I had to deal with a warranty issue on my purchased from original owner seat and they didn't bat an eyelash at it. Took care of it right away. +!

I painted and mounted a beemer front fender on it to day to get rid of the cow catcher, bolted right up no problems. It made a HUGE difference driving home in the wind and rain. Took photos but they are too large to post here.

Mine is plastic.

I have a Sargent on my V-Strom, and it's great. Might be a little wide for a DR, though.

It may be something intended for a different market for the DR. In any case, handy to have it there.

Every time I see that picture I just want to pat the little guy on the head. Little guys are so much fun. Little girls are even more precious! You're in for big problems with the boyfriends in the future! Good luck!!!

Go back a few pages, Max. Someone posted a thread with links to a company that's selling lowered/adjustable pegs. Within the last week or two, IIRC...

over 500 pages and 7,500 I think we can safely say this thread is still alive and kicking.. When i started this thread i never expected it to be this popular,... I cant see this thread dying there's always new info on modding a DR650 and due to its simplicity and affordabilty it makes these mods alot more affordable to 90% of the people who ride these bikes!!!! as of late though im a bit disappointed in the lack of dr650 photos being posted so here is mine .....

Very solid fibreglass/resin type pan.
