Nice I was thinking if I get a smaller lighter 2nd bike it would be between a CRF250L or a DR650. My XT660Z is about 40kg heavier than those two but do real well on the longer open trips.

Thank you   :thumleft:
Seriously thinking about one, as it looks like a worthy replacement for my Bushlander which I miss terribly on the shorter rides.
They are great bikes. I had the Rally which is a bit heavier. My biggest gripe with them is the ridiculous rear shock, way to pap for anyone outside of Asia. If possible budget for a heavier spring.
Rear suspension upgrade is easy. Fit a 15mm spacer and it is sorted.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.
