    Windy day hiccups

    Is your airbox stock or has it had the top cut out? I've heard of this happening on bikes that have had the top cut out of the airbox.

    It's all rider dr650 clip

    I love my DR. It really is a do-it-all motorcycle. The best motorcycle purchase I have ever made. I have put a bunch of miles on it and have seen a lot of neat country. It doesn't excel at anything but it's pretty damn good at everything. I keep hoping for something new and updated to be released to replace it with, but so far I haven't seen anything that I know would be as versatile as the mighty DR. Check out these ride reports for a sample of where I ride. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=390418 &highlight=steens+forks+owyhee http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=512149 http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=624498

    This is a short video of me with my DR650 in Moab a couple of years ago. A lot slower pace than your video but a little more technical.
  8. In case you weren't aware of this, get out there and participate. See you there. http://www.blm.gov/id/st/en/info/newsroom/2011/october/public_invited_to.html BOISE – On November 5, 2011, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is inviting the interested public, including recreationists, both motorized and non-motorized, to participate in identifying roads and trails previously used on public lands located north of Big Willow Creek in Payette County. In May 2011, BLM temporarily closed 37 miles of roads and trails to motorized off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreational travel near Big Willow Creek Area, located in Payette County. The purpose of the closure was due to the presence of Packard’s milkvetch, a recently listed candidate species for protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The closure affected approximately 7,100 acres northwest of Emmett, Idaho, which the BLM administers. Two public meetings, hosted by BLM in June, in Payette and Emmett, were held to discuss the purpose of the temporary closure. Many of those who attended the public meetings were OHV recreationists who offered to help the BLM identify the roads and trails they used in the Big Willow Creek area. BLM has identified November 5, as the day the interested public can participate in this mapping effort. Those with geographical positioning system (GPS) units are encouraged to bring them. However, they are not needed in order to participate. Maps of the area will be available for identifying roads and trails. They will later be added to the Bureau’s computerized Geographical Information System. Meet on the North side of Big Willow Creek Road about 2 miles east of the intersection with Stone Quarry Gulch. BLM staff will be on-site from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. “Identification of roads and trails previously used by recreationists is an important part of our development of a long-term plan for preserving Packard’s milkvetch and its habitat, and for managing future motorized and non-motorized recreational activities in this area,” said Terry Humphrey, Field Manager of the BLM Four Rivers Field Office.

    Dr 650 swap meet

    I need the bar end weights and screws for my 2007 DR650. A stock set of "not crashed and bent handlebars" would be nice too. And since I'm asking, how about a black front fender and black headlight cowling. Thanks.

    Sargent vs corbin

    I've had both. The Corbin has firm foam, is pretty wide up front which rubbed my legs standing up. The wide front also makes it harder to reach the ground if you are short legged. The base is made out of some really heavy stuff. Very comfortable for sitting. I think the firm foam would be better if you aren't a lightweight. I now have the Sargent. It has softer foam, is narrower up front so it's nicer when standing on the pegs. The only thing I don't like about the Sargent is the welting rubs my legs while standing up. I had read something about having them topstitch instead of using a welt. But I bought mine from Kientech and that's all they had. The Sargent uses a nice lightweight base like the stock seat and seems to bolt on easier as well. Also very comfortable for sitting.

    conditions at big willow?

    Unless you like mud, ice and snow I wouldn't waste your time. It's supposed to be raining Sunday also. I went out last Saturday to Clay Peak and rode around a little bit. The snow-free spots were freaky. About 2 inches of loose sand on top of frozen ground. Very sketchy. Slip sliding away. I also just saw they are going to have a WORCS race there again this year May 27-29. http://www.worcsracing.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=109&Itemid=51 Here's what it looked like. I dug a spot with my boot here. Ice skating anyone?
