Truly an incredible report. I'll be back in the dual sport arena again soon. I bought a new DRZ400S and currently have it apart to set it up for adventure touring. I plan to take several trips to Death Valley this winter to complete some of the loops I haven't completed a few years ago. Also hope to ride some of the best of the TAT and Conti Divide Trail and would like to spend two or three days riding Moab. Your report is great. Do you plan to take the XR650R on your next off road adventure? Always love your reports.
