Hello All, Just joined, I'm in the market for a Dual Sport bike and have been looking at the XR-650L. I wanted to talk w/ some owners before I purchase. I probably won't be ready until this spring. I'm looking at all the factory offerings including a Suzuki DRZ 400. I am even considering a DS kit to legalize a off road bike, like a Yamaha WR 426 since all I've ever owned is Yamaha. It's a shame they don't offer a decent DS. I live in the People's Republic of Northern Virginia so quiet and stealthy are important. I'd like to be able to commute to work say 80 miles round trip. I expect my percentage of use would be 70% road and 30% off road. I want something that's light enough to load on my pickup and take with me for a weekend getaway, run to the store for errands, trail ride w/ my 8 year old who's taking an interest in the 76 YZ 80 lurking in the garage, explore some gravel roads, trails and maybe hit a couple of small jumps, I'm 38, 6', 160 lbs. Any comments appreciated. Kent.
