Just saying hello to a bunch of people who have already given me so much info. I've lurked for a while, trying to learn as much as I could before taking the plunge. As of today, I own a 2005 DR that I'll show in a different thread, when I get permission. Sweet bike -- 12K miles, but almost entirely stock, from what I can tell.

I've spent a couple months looking for an east-coast DR that was close to original, reading everything I could on this and other forums. Ordered myself a RRR toolkit and some basic supplies from ProCycle. The bike's about 6 hours from me, so it'll be a couple weeks before I actually get it. I can't wait, though -- this has already been an awesome community to join. I grew up a dirtbiker, starting out on a JR50 when I was 6. In recent years I've been working on old Vespas, but the long-distance bug bit me, so here I am.

Anyway, looking forward to paying back what yinz have given noobs like me.

Relatively unfarkled...

...but with Tusk boxes.

Its back-side.

The PO is including its original yellow cladding, which is pretty great. Dunno if I'll ever go back, though.
