A few simple mods and the DR650 can become more of anything you want – desert sled, trail blaster or dual sport runner and all of this from a low price point base that’s top of the good value on two wheels list.Opinion 1 I spent a year on a DR and I still can’t get over the places I rode on it.It’s a stunning bike that shows the cleverness of the Suzuki engineers way back when it was conceived.
While they both perform the dual-sport purpose with ease, the DR is better suited in stock form for dirt.
He has an irrefutable anointing on his life to meet people where they are – whether rich or poor, young or seasoned, educated or uneducated, entrepreneur or ex-con, Dr.
Armed with the Word of God, this business-savvy author and visionary is determined to make his mark for the Kingdom of God.
But what has to be remembered, apart from all this, is that the DR is actually a nice bike to ride.
The DR650 is a living legend and there are some blokes who would take exception to any criticism of it via physical violence. Its reliability is beyond reproach and it’s often the go-to bike in the shittiest parts of this brown land.
You can ride it to work, ride it on the trails and cross the Simpson Desert on it.
Sure the seat’s too hard but the engine has plenty to give from bottom to top and the suspension is that jack-of-all-trades kind of set-up that works to suit the road and dirt user and it does it well.
The DR is definitely one of the great dirt bikes of our time.
