I resurected this 1990 DR big from boxes of parts last summer. Its one of 30 dr800 that were ever inmported to north america, so probably one of the very few left. I only had time to ride it about 100kms last year. I had to make a run to Sault STe. Marie yesterday and it was looking to be above freezing so I gave it a go. About +3C along the big lake and the heated grips and jacket burned some amps all day. Conclusion after 600kms.
She burns as much or more gas than my 950 but runs very smooth and is extremely comfortable. The ride report will be when I take off at the end of july for a run down through the mountainous states to stash the bike in southern California . Can't wait.
