Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

NEXT to come - Steering dampener, Full Staintune system (when I can find a second hand one) maybe a screen, if I can come up with one that doesn't look like crap.

My previous DR650, a 1990 model.
I prefer the later model,
but, damn those early ones came well equipped:
21 litre tank, decent alloy bashplate, carry rack, firm suspension, and the best fairing ever......Suzuki are you listening!

Yep but they bend back easily too.

I bent mine on a wallaby once. I collected a bit of fur and blood.

The case saver saves cases.

Gotta agree the earlier ones were well equipped particularly the "Dakar" one - it would be nice to get a pristine DR Big too.
