I cant stop looking at it lol..Whose ever it is, my hats off to ya!
Would be better if it had the steering stabilizer and highway dirtbikes guards
What is it a dr650?

It would be better if it didn't have all of that crap in front of the handlebars.
Kinda hard to see through that windshield with all that tint film on it.
Yes DR650 with Yenkro fearing and DRZ usd forks with billet triples, I believe...So clean!
Having said that hydraulic clutch throws off the DR650, unless there's a conversion available or custom made.
Seek professional help.
Enlighten me guru!
WheRR you coveting the obtrusive dash or the DR650 you hope is behind it?
For far less $$$ you can duct tape over your goggles or face shield for the same effect.
Nice cockpit. I like the use of less $$ components.
Pay no attention to the nattering ninnies of negativity.
You must be new around here...he's dissing on you man.
He's saying since it's not a KTM or Pitster it's utter Japanese shit...this is Navin's mo.
I'm sure the rest of KTM fanboys around here will pop in and say it should just be burned, because that's about all the input they can borinly offer.
I think it's a great build.
God I wana Puke now and preferably all over Navin!
I guess Yenkro is what it takes to even make a shitty ol Pumpkin look good
If it floats your boat, by all means, kyo. I just see a dog's breakfast of electronics waiting to explode upon first slam.
Don't DRZ USD forks (which are SM) have less travel than traditional DRZ forks??

Doubt it. The fairing is tough and they have been extensively crash tested.
They are a well made bit of kit.
Inreach functions as a gps, so can very remotely see having it on the bar. But also a Spot?
Idea of a PLB is to have it on your person! Help, I've fallen and can't get up!
Some people are even paranoid enough that they want the PLB mounted externally on their chest or upper torso. Claiming it's too hard to get out of a pocket with a broken arm.
Anyways, whatever floats your boat.
That's encouraging, especially if you run a small fortune of electronic stuff when you ride.
Like I said, whatever floats it, I'm not the threadshittin type.
Maybe "Nice Dashboard" woulda been a better title cause yes, it does get better than this. You wandered into a high dollar candy store with Bazooka bubble gum.
Nice DR650 though.
That setup is probably fine if your running down a smooth dirt road or don't mind standing allot but the problem I see with those setups are you almost have to stand up to see if there's a chance something might be in your path that you have to weave through. We ride allot of dirt along the sides of mountains, shelf road kind of stuff, everyone who rides in the mountains does. It's almost guaranteed you have small rollers come down off the mountain stopping on the trail. Weaving them isn't a problem but you're not going to do it sitting down behind that setup. Might not sound like a big issue but hit one of those unexpectedly and it can easily redirect you off the trail where the bottom could be 100s of feet below. Same with dried mud rutted dirt roads, those often require very precise weaving between ruts at speed and hitting one wrong often means your going down also at speed. I know I really don't feel like standing for long periods of time, possibly the owner of that bike does.
To each their own and I think they look cool but practicality-wise mostly what they do is just add allot of weight to the front of the bike screwing up it's handling and mandating that you stand allot more in the dirt. I don't feel the need to see the spot up on the dash and that's not even the best place for it. It's a look that gained popularity due to rally racing and in that application there's a functional purpose for all that dash area and protection, roll charts and navigation equipment that need protected and even still many of those are going to a see through upper area for the same reasons I mentioned.
I just don't get all the plastic people are bolting onto the front ends of their lightweight bike is all
Eakinzzz is just grumpy as he knows I could like a Big 4 bike if they ever developed one after the DRZ in 2000.... Besides the boat anchors they brought out like the "Raliegh" pig.
KTM, and oddly enough GPX- Pitster, arent wallowing in the froggin 1990s. BNG aint cuttin it, even if you bolt a door to the steering head.
