    I thought I start a thread for all to do with my new DR650. To start with first pics of the day I picked her up and brought her home 🙂

    I already got it dirty few times, including on the Central Plateau ride that Edward has organised 🙂

    I was actually amazed at how well they went on the 42nd and on the Forgotten Highway on the way to the Bridge to Somewhere. Only had one scare on the Fishers when we discovered that the last section got graded and they took off all the shingle bar a single layer covering the clay track. I thought it was my tires or wrong pressures as I kept sliding around all the corners and nearly lost the front 2 or 3 times, but then discovered that everyone had the same problem as me. So was very happy with the stock tyres. Might look at something bit more aggressive next, though I would go back to the stock ones again without hesitating

    What are these stock tyres please? I seem to be doing more road than off road riding lately and these might be a better option that will not wear as quick and be as pricey as the adventure pirelli’s.

    The rears are OK, but I like something more aggresive on the front. Loosing the front ain’t fun.

    They are the original tires that came with the bike, so I thought I will use them up, but so far have been pleasantly surprised by their performance.
