    picking up a pair of dr's (650 and 200)

    well I was all set to go and buy a klr 650 but alas I could not do it, they ride great and all that but the more I thought about it the more I knew the klr was not for my riding style. So I kept looking and found a package deal on a 2000 dr 650 with 5100 miles and a 00 dr 200 with 1700 miles, the 200 is for the wife, they are both like new,I rode a dr 650 before and did not like it as well as the klr for comfort but I will deal with that, the dr is a way more simple bike to work on and with out all the plastic junk on it. I like the klr don't get me wrong but just not for me. I will post some pics when I get them home.... I told the wife I was not going to sell the tw and she was a little unhappy about that but she is over it for now

    Nice choice you will love the get up and go the only thing you need to check is the NSU screws some get loose and fall out and get into the transmission gears.1579824_10201998371952955_1176161594_n.jpg my 2011. so go to ADV rider dr650 forum and you will get all the help you need see you over there. the DR650 and TW200 are a great deal.

    I picked up a low mileage 09 Dr650 myself about a month ago. I was pleasantly surprised at how nimble it felt off road. It didn't feel nearly as heavy as I thought it would.
    Fun bike with gobs of power that loves to wheelie with a whole lot more legs than the TW. I will always keep the TW's for going slow and smelling the roses but the DR is for when I feel like being a hooligan.
    The seat definitely needs to be replaced. Looks like a Seat Concepts is on the Christmas list.
    Dirtracks.com has some fair priced accessories.
