    Purchased to downsize from my R1200GS Adventure as I learned that true dual sport riding requires something much lighter and more nimble. Many hard core dirt riders still think the DR is a pig but with Cogent shock and fork upgrades, this is a very competent dual sport and a lot more fun than the 600+ lb Bavarian if the going gets tough. I like my GS but not on anything more challenging than gravel roads and two track trails. I expect to ride the DR a lot more than the GS in 2017.

    Perfect bike for an older rider downsizing from a large heavy twin cylinder adventure tourer. In my case, a BMW R1200GS Adv. I know the DR is heavy by dirt bike standards but it feels like a featherweight to me.
