You are most welcome. If you need any guidance along the way, give me a shout. I did a frame off build on a DR650 a few years back. Fixed the weak issues on the bike and built back how I wanted. That bike has done the Transamerica Trail, twice and the continental divide. Excellent commuter in rural or heavy traffic areas.That's exactly what I'm looking at, I can probably get a smaller bike for cheaper but I want this to be MY bike and with how much work I plan to do this bike will mean a lot, I think bigger is better in this case.
Thank you so much for your input it's very valuable
