cbr600 is one of the bikes I had a test ride on before deciding on the DL650.
Riding posture topped the list. Also, it helped me realize I'm not into the screamin' revs of the inlines.
On the other hand, the wee is find on any hard-pack surface, but has a heavy nose that doesn't like soft stuff.
IMO "adventure bike" aptly describes the wee. As a dual-sport, it's maybe 70% road bike, 20% off road. Not 100%? Nope, but I love it for what it is and don't dwell on what it isn't.
I'm sure that being 50 yrs young has no bearing at all on my perspective.
04 DL650, 18k+ miles, lowered, grip heaters, hand guards, touring laminar lip, trunk, soft saddlebags (when needed), aprillia mirrors, frame&swingarm sliders, fork brace, skid plate
