Ok...admittedly I go through bikes like water so that doesn't help much. I might have a buyer for the DR650 I just finished building exactly how I wanted. Fully set up. Runs great, has plenty of power. Suspension is good. Did sections of slab like a champ. But what I found is that since I am taller (6'4") every time I would put my pivot leg out it would hit the ground prematurely and found that I wanted the bike much taller on many occasions. This is my third DR 650 and yes I like the engine and everything I can do with them but I am not sure it will ever do what I want. I had a 2011 Husqvarna TXC511 that I made street legal and it did well but not enough ability to carry all the necessary stuff for long distance off road. WR450 was closer but not enough grunt for me and does not like to be tractored around...I found it got too hot too fast. DRZ did not have enough legs on slab. I like to have some good low in grunt, taller suspension, ability to have long range with gas, and enough support on the bike that I can carry tubes, tools, and what ever else I need. So I understand that there is not a bike that will be perfect for me, but I was wondering what the masses thought I should look at.....640 Adventure (is it too heavy or too tempromental), 690 Enduro, XR650R, TE510 with big tank, 525 with big tank or a 530 or 505 or something else I am not thinking of???? My main concern is with the pure bulletproofness (yes that is a word...I just typed it) DR650....that is what I really like and availability and how inexpensive the parts are. What are your thoughts....real world experience please no DR650s suck anyway because they are not KTM.....that will not help me at all.
