Hello everyone,
Glad to be part of the group here. I have had bikes all my life. From the age of 4 until 20 I had about 32-34 motorcycles, either strictly dirt or duel sport but I never bothered to get my licence until About 6 years ago. I had a battle with cancer and once I was in the clear I decided to pick up riding bike again. It just so happened the my friend was selling his 2011 DR 650
For a steel. Never realized how much I missed it and how much it helps clear your mind when out for a blast in the back roads. My wife also picked up a 2007 dr 200 and she got her license that year also, she is totally hooked on the back country riding and I must admit she is a good rider.

I'll post a pic of the bike and list the mods I have done so far. Sad thing is that ATM my engine is in pieces due to the luck of having one of the few with third gear failure, good news is that I caught is super early and I am currently awaiting of the parts to arrive.

It's a long intro post I know but I like to rant on from time to time lol . Thanks again for the access to the DR community here and I am looking forward to sharing some stories and pics over time.
