Nice stuff Eddy. I like that open desert view. Similar to some areas I ride.

I'm going to check my the tool kit now because it's obvious I do not carry enough.

You probably have enough in your tool kit already. All it takes to tear it down that far is a philips screwdriver, 12mm wrench, and whatever you need to take that aftermarket tank off. Stock tank would just be a 10mm wrench.

Good eye, zip-tied on! What bolt thingys? Oh, I see what you mean, those are the new bolts for the center stand. I removed the chain roller.

Yeah after I posted my comment I realized it really does not take that many tools to take the bike apart like that.

I still need to go through my master tool kit though because I don't have the same bikes I did when I put the kit together. I still have the DR650 though. Don't plan on giving that up anytime soon

I really like that grey color. How does it look in person?

So how do you like this new color as compared to the previous years?

I really like it. I thought I was not going to like it from the pictures in the brochure, but once I saw it, I was completely happy with it

So far I've preferred black, white or b&w, now I see that grey is the best of both. But, who cares about looks, it's the beauty in the all purpose nature of this great bike. Also, it's good to see someone stepping up to the plate and buying new product so that the big S keeps them coming and the used DR market continues to prosper. Safe travels and miles of smiles to you.
