yeah.I still see the DL650 as analogous to a pickup or suv. If you buy a stock F250 it isn't a "rock climber" but it will generally get you to job sites or if you are careful, let you check your cattle or crops. I think the DL650 (with a "protection package") will go about anywhere the work truck will go and will have problems where the work truck will have problems.
that's about the concept I had with it. I was not seeking a full on around the world type bike. but something to go out thru the fields with.
