Gday GdeR, YEAH AGREE THE SUSPENSION NEEDS A WORK OVER , I HAVE OWNED 2 650s and my current 2009 model has an Ohlins Shock and heavier fork springs, biggest improvement to the 650 is the 4 piston front caliper upgrade. Never ridden a 1k so dont know what the brakes are like
Any Stom is never gunna be a true Adv bike, but take it for what it is and modify it to your taste and they a great go most places bike. I sold my 04 model after 50K and doing a bit of single track and bought a Dr 650, boy did i miss the comfort of the Wee on long tar road trips only had the DR for 8 months and sold it to get the current bike. Had it for 8 years now and still enjoy jumping onit to explore down the South Coast.

Hi Gerald
Sounds like a great ride.
I was the membership coordinator for the DSMRA for about 5 years, back in 2006 I think.
Good to see they are doing rides for ADV bikes.
