Here's my Suzuki Freewind. Ultimate reliability with a more road orientated twist. (DRT650 with fairings) Its goes where a DR650 can but does road as well.

The Freewind seat is not a plank. Go figure, they make a comfortable adventure bike with the reliable dr650 powertrain but you can't get one.

Suzuki's are good cause they just keep going,Ive got 25000 on the DR650 and it runs just like the day I got it,the DRZe 400 with the license plate works just fine for dirt riding as long as it doesnt land on me. Ive just picked up a 93 RMX 250 that has a plate also,it has a 310 kit in the engine,its barely street legal and needs some fiddling but could be good.
I had a 77 GS750 a looonng time ago,I beat it and beat it,even in the dirt some,it never needed a wrench and ran great.

Your bikes look great and very dirt worthy. Reliability is synonymous with Suzuki and with their affordability make them a great choice.

I LOVE this thread!!!!

Boy - I was sure happy to see this thread as I LOVE my DR, and, for some reason some of the Alaskan inmates tease me and my bike, calling her things like a Dumpster Reject or Doubly Repulsive. After 25,000 miles with no problems, I heartily believe she's Dependable and Reliable. I bought her three years ago, and after I learned to ride, we've had tons of fun and covered thousands of miles, seeing an amazing amount of stunning scenery. We've been to Prudhoe Bay and Inuvik and (knock on wood) she's given me no problem, other than not wanting to go home when I tell her I have to get back to work. Females can sure be stubborn sometimes.

This photo was taken in 2008, my first summer riding. I didn't know anybody but I didn't let that stop me from riding and exploring some of Alaska's highway. Over Labor Day Weekend I spent four days on the Denali Highway, camping, riding and hiking. I thought I would ride over the dirt road one direction and go home on slab, making a loop. But I had so much fun riding on the dirt highway that I rode back over the highway on my way home. A true ADV-riding fanatic was born that summer!



This photo was taken this summer out in McCarthy, on a ride I did with the infamous Alcan Rider. I am thankful he has let me go on some long-distance rides with him as I always learn a lot from him. I have added a few more farkles to my bike since I bought her.



My DR is a true dual-sport bike, thanks to the super handy bicycle rack.



I really like the Freewind. It looks like a bike a Granny Gone Wild (like myself) would enjoy riding!

Happy trails! Keep the Suzuki love going!
