Ran dr650 with choke on for 5 miles

Very interesting story. But, I didn't get to see how it ended!

I'm wondering how you could NOT know for 5 miles. No big deal unless it was dusty, the choke runs your bike on unfiltered air.

 nah its filtered. Just a different port is all.

There's a small chance of it causing a problem, possibly.. I had an odd one once where my needle / carb slide spring for no good reason ended up bunched up with at the top of the carb therefore allowing the needle to bounce around all over. I was trying to get to work on it at the time, got about 1/4 mile down the road - bogged to a stop and lost all compression. I didn't know what had happened until I stripped it down but it had caused things to coke up so badly the valves wouldn't seal. Weird and very annoying at the time!
