    While you're so busy stereotyping people and bikes you're to prejudiced to know or care about, I'm busy having the same exact experience with my bike(s), thanks :fyyff

    do we need to compare the amount of "hey, look at me and my TE610" to the amount of "hey, look at me and my DR650" threads?

    Lighten the fuck up Francis...you DR guys take yourselves far too seriously:lol3

    Seriously? There are a thousand other threads you can read. If you don't like DR owners and don't want to read about their bikes, then don't click on this thread.

    That's kinda the whole point!! I think the TE610 is a great bike and I hope you have all the threads you want.

    Thanks for pointing out the DR thread, I love a good public meltdown.:lol3

    I think most threads about most popular bikes have issues like that though, probably because there are so many experts on the bike.

    The KTM LC4 seems OK though because we have a small band of people that know there shit, and everyone else knows they know there shit.

    Even after they fake there own death they still get all the respect they deserve when they step up with an opinion, just like that Facken Creeper guy.:lol3

    I stick my nose into KTM talk occasionally for info on my RFS engined bike, and you should see the arguments I have read between a couple of guy who are in the business of rebuilding RFS engines...

    To many experts I tell ya.

    And here is a pic of my old DR650rs just to keep it slightly less off topic...

    Thanks Rev and greenlizard. No disrespect to the 99.9% of the guys on the DR thread that are good guys, but at some point, a guy just has to throw the BS flag.

    Anyway, cool bikes. Whats the story behind that blue/yellow windscreen?

    I just wanted it to look more like a rallye bike.:lol3

    I don't know if you're familiar with the DR650rs, but it's just a fiberglass screen I made to replace the standard screen, and also to house the twin head lights, the standard rs had one rectangular light.

    sorry, i couldn't help it - the first time i saw the pic of your dr i broke out laughing, having read your tag line prewiously! :freaky

    only one of my 3 bikes is a dr; i don't think it's quite as ugly as yours, if i do say so myself...
