  1. No Idea

    Living with a DR 600

    I was in this café. The bloke from next door parked a van and trailer outside with a big enduro in it. Looked like a big Honda XL to me. He said he had just MOT tested it. Something it needs to go on the roads here in England UK. I thought that I would like a bike like that. He said what he wanted for it. Too much. Couldn’t get it. I had been waiting for one for about 15 years. Expert rider me. Mainly on / off roaders. So good that they all thought I would kill myself before I got to 20. As it happened, I got into cars and got worse. Somehow I survived and got to 50. No Idea how. A few years later, I heard the man next door might be selling stuff. I had a bit of a windfall. Didn’t think he would still have it, but… “Yea. I'm selling up. Honda? Nope never had one. I've got a Suzuki offroader though. Nope I haven’t ridden it for at least 8 years and I don’t know when it was last MOTd. I didn’t have it in a trailer. Nope. I do not want to sell it.” Balls. No Idea what just happened, but I'm pretty sure I'm still bikeless. 30 minutes later… “I've thought about it. I do need to sell the Suzuki. Do you want to come look at it? It’s a DR 600.” Of course I want to come see it. I hung up. Er…Whats a DR? Vaguely remember seeing a plastic tanked yellow 125 possibly in the early 80’s that might have been a DR. It was a four stroke. I think. Checked with the all seeing almanac of all things with a price. Ebay didn’t have any. I'm going to look at and possibly buy a bike I have absolutely no knowledge of. What could possibly go wrong? Nice brick car garage. Bike leaned on bench. It was mainly white like I remembered, but it was also blue. Tyres flat. Battery dead. No electric start? On a 600? Er…Should I run away? He gets on it. Primes it. Kicks it. It started! Pulled the front brake and clutched it, clicked it into gear. Clunk It stalled and wouldn’t restart. Do you ever get that feeling when you run your hand across a bikes seat that it should be yours? Flat tyres, no Electric start, front brake jammed on, clutch plates seized, dead battery, 42,188 km on the clock, wont restart. Clock runs in Kilometers and this country is all in miles. That’s what I could see wrong in my 5 minute inspection. I made him an offer for it – hoping it was enough and also wasn’t too much, and for him to deliver it as he still had the van. Couldn’t believe it when he said yes.
