Well there might be a trend towards enduro bikes for a while. My recently acquired DR650 is cleaning up nicely and after some fun afternoon test rides playing in a few mud holes and such I now officially have the dualsport bug… BAD! This thing is a freaking blast! It doesn’t hurt that I almost stole it when I bought it. There was literally a moving van in the driveway when I got there so the negotiations nicely turned my way. Even when all the mods are done I’ll be in it for under $3k. Came with the IMS tank and a spare Corbin seat!
Here’s a few pics after her bath. Still have some tweaking to do. So far new 50/50 tires, new handlebars, new heavier rear spring and lot more ghoodies on the way including 520 chain/sprocket, front springs, brakes, wheel bearings etc etc.. along with all the necessary maintenance stuff that you have to do to a bike when you dont’t know anything about it’s “real” history. Anywhay here’s how she sits at the moment but I think a switch to all white (with tasteful decals) my be in the offing. Too soon to tell.
