Its not only a good looking bike, it also rides exceptionally well, from what I could tell over the few km I rode it to clear that fuel blockage. Whoever worked that bike over did an amazing job.

Well balanced, excellent suspension and amazing low-end grunt from a willing and rather eager engine.

@Tony the Bony said same  :thumleft:

That would be the Hooligan Handler (or Wrangler) @Dux, who fixes, tunes, pimps and farkles my DR fleet. He knows a thing or two about suspension O0

All I know is I had the best ride :ricky:

Something to think about...
When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept your it. All else is madness.

Well done again Ri, always a pleasure to read your reports. Nice photos as well that add a lot to story of the areas you’re riding through.

For sure! I'm disappointed I didn't get a chance to drool over your DR, we'll need to arrange a DR bash.

Looking forward to reading your RR too :thumleft:
