Seeing a few dual sports on craigslist but nothing that I was impressed with. So I thought to myself, how can I have fun, pay nearly nothing for insurance and have a little power at the same time (CBR owner) for less than $3,000.
So I went on craigslist looking for a XR650 Honda, saw a bunch but I found this DR650 for $2800, I brought my haggling friend along and came home with it for $2450.
The parts list began as soon as I got home.
The whole purpose of this build is to have fun on the street instead of sitting in traffic, maybe a little off-road adventure.
Not looking to build a $10,000 bike (which I completely respect, I'm just broke) just simply want something better than a car, and I know we can all agree, any Dual Sport bike is more fun than your average Toyota Corolla.
Just want to make it how I think Suzuki should have built it off the showroom floor.
