Did this video help you?

C moore: I really enjoyed the video. Believe it or not, I'm 65 and have been riding for over 50 years. I started before there were any dirt bikes even available in the US. Motocross wasn't even here yet. All we had were what were called scrambles and flat track. I've broken everything that can be broken at least once. I'm planning on getting a dp bike as another toy. I gave a fusion in my neck so I know I won't be able to be as aggressive as I want to be. The doctor told me if I hurt my neck again I will be paralyzed. Actually, nobody makes what I really want. I want to run Pikes Peak in June in the senior division. I'm looking for something that I can go anywhere but still ride 250 miles on. On top of that, I'm short. I've raced everything but trials, so I definitely know what I'm doing, I just don't know if this is what I need. I like liquid cooling, but I don't want a klr because they are too heavy for off road. They are more for soft road. Any suggestions? The BMW 800 is too tall and too heavy.  A little pricey, too but love the Rotax.

byers: Sorry the rider is great not the bike! when he rides a XR650R that is tricked out like the DR650 he will know!

Bush Pig: What happened to the awesome commentary!?!

DR Dan: The DR 650 is a good adv bike with a few mods.  It needs a seat and a larger tank at the min.  I have that and bark busters, skid plate, heavy springs front and rear, exhaust, carb mods, pro taper bar, lower gearing, rear rack and wolfman bags.

The motor is very smooth for a big single which helps on the highway.  The stock seat sucks and stock tank is too small.  Add a better exhaust, with carb and air box mods and you should be getting close to 40 hp.

The skid plate, bark busters and pro taper bar are crash and trail protection.  It would suck to fall and badly bend the handle bar in no where.  Broken levers and a hole in the crank case can ruin an adv ride quickly.

I took my big pig to the CO Rocky Mts last summer and had a blast.  Dropped it several times with no damage.  Got a nice scar on the skid plate.  It saved the trip and my checking account.

curly27784: I have an '01 and while I agree that they are great bikes, I have to add that they are extremely fussy about what tire will work in what terrain. A lot of that is the weight, but the torque curve on these bikes is a vertical line and it seems like the bike overpowers the tires very quickly. 

bepowerification: Here's a quick question, I plan on buying a 600ish bike this year and I would love to hear your opinion: why is the DR650 better than the XT600? It's gonna be one of those for me.

radewful: May I please be advise what is the name of the song in this clip ? Thanks

Gravel1stSt.last: I see you have 4 dislikes (must be ktm riders) that's not to bad, as you have 110.496 views. Well that's wrong, (myself 5 times) By the way, is your real job in sales? You sold me, thanks!

Demonheart8: omg nice wheelie !!

DJC2020: This vid rocks. Thanks man. Ordered one today !

Graeme Thorne: What a great video and sound track, I'll trade my Vstrom for that/round the world.


jon: nice work!

13conair: I have the CCM R30 644 supermoto which has the DR650 motor with the twin carbs extra bhp fun fun fun, superbikes hate motards with a passion :)

davea4570: Had a 02 DR650, now have a 98 XR650L. IMHO the Honda is a more tried and true dual sport bike. Tougher engine, been around for 20+ tears. Air-cooled engine more reliable and simpler. I've owned over 15 motorbikes in my day, the XR650L by far the best! 

nutnfan1: DEBATE PLEASE:
I'd like to get a first dual sport bike here soon. My requirements are:
Highway capable, but not dedicated highway commuter. 
Enough space and power for storage units. 
Very off road capable, but nothing extreme like jumping. 
Low ball budget. 

I am 5'10" and 150lbs, long arms and legs. 

Some options I'm looking at are the DR, KLR, and XR. Maybe DRZ, but I think for maximum reliability I want air-cooled only (opinion can be changed). Please add any other bikes I should consider, and give me your choice if you were in my shoes and why!  :)

Oli 325: freaking love your quotes hahahaaha

Retro 1965: Best corny one liners for a bike ever...

Kurt Jensen: I get it.  The DR 650 is the Chuck Norris of motorcycles. Oh, and don't dare even look at one without possessing a pair of gimongous testicles.  

Andrew Connellan: Speedo on the black one looks like mine...constantly on zero.

coal james: As far as PC goes VR will sell well, Native 3d with an all encompassing view and head motion control's fit verry well into PC's vast wealth of first person games. I also see the VR's "I'n time" as cheap alternatives to HUGE overpriced 3D screens.
SCOTTMCKAY1982: NICE! :)
