Very nice. Looks clean. I love the DR650. Planning to get another one this summer, maybe even a brand spankers new one if I don't find one that looks as good as yours used.
I've been looking for a bigger bike that style wise came close to the TW. I was into the profile of my TW, it reminded me of my enduro bikes of the 70s. And I didn't like lots of plastic like the KLR has. I wanted something kind of minimilistic and simple, low saddle, easy to work on, and a thumper of course! Well I settled on a 2008 DR 650. And I call it "Big Brother." TW gets along fine with his adopted brother from another mother. Though I didn't tell TW that Big Brother has eaten up his Farkle allowance.
Congrats, those are good solid bikes. I like the seat, looks comfortable.
Here is my '07 DR650. Behind it is Big D on his Honda XR650L. Behind him are 750 million tax dollars that were flushed down the toilet.

Long live the internal combustion engine!
I liked my DR650. Even more so with the lowering kit. Might get another and lace up some TW rim sizes--never thought to measure and see if the rear would fit. Front is a simple matter of billet triples. and a spacer or 3.
Did Suzuki ever "fix" some of the issues with the past production DR's.......I read some had poor castings for 3rd gear and a couple other things I cannot remember off-hand. I did have a 650L several years ago,good bike but was a sail in the highway ?....is the DR650 the same way?. I really loved the suspension of the 650L and the seat.
