The DR650E now seems like the perfect bike for these roads, as they are twisty, winding, and I've an option for gravel on almost every trip I take. A short 17 kilometer rip from the Storage locker to Wendy's driveway leaves me with an ear to ear grin and a desire to mount some Kenda 270's on it as soon as possible.
Suzi is settling in well with my sister's two dogs, Abbey and Zip zip, a black labrador retriever and a Jack Russell Terrorist. :)
