    Pickup new DR next week

    Cheers all, Pick up new bike next week and after reading all posts is this forum I want to see if I've got everything straight. Bike will only be used on the road. No dirt unless I get ran off the road. Seat will take some kind of adjustment because it is hard. If I shim the needle, drill extra slide hole, adjust screw under carb, remove snorkle and add a windshield it should be good to go for an old man like me. If I want it to go faster it will require other mods I have read about. How is the stock suspension on the road? Are the brakes adequate? I'm looking for smooth and dependable transportation. I believe the DR will meet my needs. Any comments would be helpful. This is really an informative forum. Oldman1943
