Hello everybody!
I've had my 2018 DR650 for exactly 1 month and 1,326 miles and it is by far the funnest bike I have ever rode. Started riding motorcycles when i was about 12 and I am 36 now. 1st bike was a Yamaha DT400, 2nd Yamaha V Star, 3rd Harley Sportster, 4th Harley Street Bob, and now the DR. After reading about adventure bikes/dual sports/enduros for a year or so and test riding a few that I had my list narrowed down to I think I made a smart and well researched decision and I couldn't be happier. My online wish list has almost reached the MSRP of the bike but who in their right mind buys a bone stock motorcycle and thinks "it's perfect, i don't need to change a thing!" So far I have....
2x 18w LED lights mounted on the front reflector brackets
2x 12v SAE plugs and USB adaptor
RAM Mounts
Seat Concepts Commuter seat ordered
Skid plate and case armor from Procycle ordered
And a 12x18 milk crate i u-bolt to the grab handles for running errands

Currently I live in Central Texas but am moving to Ft Irwin, CA in about a month. I can't wait to run this bike through the Mojave Desert! I look forward to sharing my experiences with you and am greatful for having found this forum!

You're moving to that area at the right time. Things are cooling down so riding the high desert will be perfect. Plenty to see out that way, including Randsburg, the lava tunnel, a ton of mining history and as you mentioned, the Mojave Preserve.

Welcome aboard!
