Progress

The DR650 is an absolutely amazing bike! Virtually unchanged since 1996, it has proven to be a low-maintenance, go-anywhere machine. There are countless modifications and upgrades to be made, and I've been working on them for the past few months. To name a few...

  • Acerbis 6.6 gal. tank for extended range
  • Cogent Mojave rear shock and Cogent DDC + spring upgrade for the front – an absolute necessity for being able to do any serious off-roading
  • Scaggs Billet Aluminum rear cargo rack for carrying tools and such
  • 12v and 5v USB power outlets + battery tender – gotta power the GPS!

Modding the bike for extended trips has been a lot of fun. Getting it Baja ready is going to take even more work, but I'm looking forward to it.
