Germany for speed tests. Thx for the slicks Hans!
busy socializing and not posting. Sorry mates. More bike info soon.
trip: best ever
The bike is running wonderfully. Everyone thinks DR650 when they see it, only a few discerning riders have noticed the motor. Mileage is ok at 40+MPG, runs rich, I might swap jets which’ll increase the MPG/MPL. Many thanks for the supportive emails and advice. A few readers have offered Twitter and FB as a place to pimp this trip. I offer that the posts will get lost in the jumble at those two places. Web-Dude is going to work on a bridge to post to everything in his spare time. (Webby, get to work!).
Photos: This might not happen. The sole purpose of the trip is to test the motor and components under the most stressful adventure I can dream up. Words mean something and the written word seems to be lost in today’s tweet/txt laden world. I intend to bring something back to motorcyclists albeit in the form of short messages during the adventure.
In the meantime.
Details to ponder: A nikasil type coating and slipper pistons that are oil cooled.
Support has been great
Communications are back up on the bike. Onward.
