Kevin C. I'm from pioneer California, 4000ft elev in the Sierra Nevada Mts. Ridden motorcycles for 50yrs had 2 stroke, four stroke, on road off road, dual sports. Raced AMA dist 37 in the so cal deserts for about 13 yrs. started at 40. My favorites all around bikes have been my Dr 650's. Just sold an Electra glide and giving up asphalt ( too many people on cell phones ) there is no more relaxing riding in California on the streets. Bought a new dl 650 xt. Going to ride the dirt roads in the western US with the wife. Got the Dakar 90/10 off-road tires. Can't really get heavily into it until after another hand surgery, so going to have to read about it for a while. Did get one good thrashing in the mountains here. Definitely needs better front suspension. But over all I think it will work.
