Or any 450, 560 or 625, although the 625 is the only street legal one.

I don't know why you bother, Me and a buddy with an FXR did a couple of hundred mile loop around Mt. Ranier and down to Mt. St. Helens yesterday, clear skies, temps in the 60's and snow at the summit, hardly any traffic.... No fun at all.

Ultra butt-uggly. What is it with those flimsy plastic flaps under the tank? Wall-mart has sexier plastic baby pibs. Geez this sucks.

KLR 650 was my first bike and I managed to drop it off a rear hitch carrier on its side when it was about a month old. Landed on a mirror. Just a scuff mark on the mirror and a slightly displaced handlebar--easily fixed. Had to readjust the mirror too.



Actually, it sprang off of the carrier into the air and then down unto the pavement. Thats what happens when you tighten down the tie-down strap too hard, compress the front shocks and then release the wrong side of the tie-down strap when youve reached youre destination. I thought I'd trashed my new bike. One scuff mark was the only lasting damage.

Looks like a ton of fun, especially on my double secret pocket roads in a place I won't name. Think the smallest, narrowest, poorly paved roads around.



Naturally I want one. But I'd need a "butt-ectomy" to fit the DRZ. Maybe one size larger. 600-650 anyone?

We'd like to note:



1. Sean's bike is a 2005 model. The 2006 has blue on yellow stickers, and clear turn signals.



2. We've been renting out the 2005 model since 4/05. We loaned a 2005 model to a local bike mag, City Bike, and got on the cover of the May 2005 issue. We would have happily loaned our 2005 to MO six months ago.



3. There is no mechanical difference between the 2005 and the 2006 models. They're great bikes. Still, MO should have mentioned they were on last year's equipment.

hello, i own a husky SMR450 and i'm really stoked on the DR. they have heaps of potential. it australia you can get them for about 3 grand less than a euro model. DR have heaps of potential and with a little extra money they would be a real weapon.

Motard is so fun and people who say otherwise haven't ridin one. Love mine to death and i'm stoked the japs have made one which i would consider a proper motard. buy one and you'll fall in love. We have all black ones in oz but i like the yellow better.
