Here's a photo of the DR650; I wish I hadn't sold it: Both were great bikes, for different reasons. The KTM had great performance, but I was always worried that I was going to hurt it, it vibrated too much, and I was peeved that the dash kept failing (common failure of '08 and older models).

We all love to twist the throttle and cruise down the road on our motorcycles, but being able to stop it is pretty crucial.

Properly functioning brake pads are critical for safe operation of a motorcycle and its important for motorcyclists to make sure that their entire braking system is in top working order before every ride. I find that riders put off replacing their motorcycle brake pads, mainly because they don’t know what kind to get. Once you understand the different types of pads, you can decide on the ones that will perform the best on your bike. The most common types of brake pads used on motorcycles are sintered, organic and semi-sintered. Knowing about each type makes it easier for a motorcyclist to find the right kind when its time to replace their own. 2-day Ride to Idaho's Lost River and Lemhi Ranges - ChinaRiders Forums.
