Another WristTwisters member CONVERTED....

Sold the Honda 919 today........ 2 weeks back, with all the spare parts and crap off the 919 --- I picked up a completely stock DR650 for $2400. I liked the bike soooo much, I started looking for a completely done, modded, DR650....... decided to put the 2003 stock DR650 up for sale.....sold that.... then bought this.....

Its a 2007 - purchased in 2008, has 3,000 miles.....and over $2,000 in aftermarket parts on it.

--- Clarke 4.5 Gal Tank, Custom Renazco seat, FMF Q2 exhaust, Mikuni TM-40 pumper carb w/ ProCycle Jetting, Eibach front fork springs, WER steering stabilizer, DR650 rear rack & engine bash plate, DR350 rear taillight conversion......and a few other fun things.....

Nice! Congrats.

I assume there are lots of trails where you can legally ride near by? That is a problem where I live.

Congrats on getting what you wanted. Makes me sad to think someone has your 9er. I would have bought that if i were closer. Hopefully the new owner takes good care of her.

That is one serious looking bike lift! Did you get it from a Harley dealer?

If I had the coin I'd be keen on a DR as a second ride - we have a lot of unsealed roads around here that lead off to interesting places. And good fishing spots!
