Bought an 03 DR650SE on Friday. First dirtbike!.
(+ a 5gal IMS tank)
NICE are those things street legal?
most likely considering those tires arent even dirt. dirt tires have big treads on them and are spaced out and the bike also has all of the lights required.
650 is awfully big for a first dirt bike, good luck on the trails and be careful
Gonna be ridden 90-95% on the street and I'm coming from a 99 Superhawk, so I should be ok.
Did you also shop the KLR when looking for a dual-sport?
Just needs some wide 17" wheels. I know a guy with a SM DR650 and he has no trouble hanging with sport bikes in the twisties.
Nope. I looked in the classifieds on the local bike board and bought on impulse.
Prob not gonna motard it. Went for my first ride up in the twisties Sun morning and the soft suspensions is SWEET on the rough roads compared to the street susp. Think I'm gonna keep it dual sport and try to ride dirt more.
congrats man. I knew you wouldnt be without a bike for long.
Yeah. The SE version is the more street-oriented version. The DRZ is for just dirt.
plate I just ordered for it :
