    The explorer is the DD (Daily Driver) and civilized camping/glamping vehicle...
    The Jeep is to get to the places far from civilization...

    I ditched my street bike for this Dr650. It's a way for me to incorporate more dirt riding into my every day Life. The plus side is i can take 2-3 day trips into the mountains and do a little bushcrafting while I'm camping off of it.

    That's awesome. One: I wish I could afford a bike. Two: even if I got one, I wish I lived in an area where I could do that. I like the idea of using an off-road bike to get deep in the bush (Giggity Giggity) for camping/Bushcraft.

    Sweet machine Pastor Chris. That's one comfy looking long distance set up you've assembled there!:dblthumb:

    I've been through some parts of Kentucky, it's a really beautiful place from what I remember:42:. Just keep sticking back money in an envelope and in a few months or years you can pick up one of these for under $3000. So long as you turn your own wrenches owning a cheap bike like this is no big deal. Bungie a good backpack on the back, tune it up, and hit the road.

    Where I live it's a good hour and a half to the nearest unpaved forest roads, and about 6 hours from the blue ridge mountains. I don't live in an ideal off-road area but I'm willing to travel to find them when I have free time. It's the most fun I've had outside the bedroom.:)

    I have to say I'm a lucky man to have found a woman to put up with my exploring.

    Trying to stay on a strict budget so the family and I can purchase some land in a year or two. This forum makes it tough but if that goes through I'll definitely look into getting a bike like that.

    My latest "bushcraft" ride is a 1997 Dodge Dakota Club Cab 4x4 that was close to a complete restore in 2015. It got a Jasper 318 Magnum motor that still has 1 year left in the warranty and much more!
    My cost ... wait for it ... $1 US!

    Back woods here we come!

    Great bikes....

    In 2013 I visited Mackay Sagebrush in Idaho. He has a cabin in the middle of nowhere where there is only ONE paved road in the area. He had a KLR650 that he explored with and I told him I'd be back the following year with one...and I made it back. Put over 3K miles on the bike of mostly dirt roads.

    The tank holds six gallons and when one is 40-70 miles from the nearest gas station it is very comforting....

    How do you like that vehicle? I was thinking about one like that in the future.

    Took it out 4 wheeling up some eroded dirt roades and it kicked ass.Definitely happy with the vehicle.

    Used to run a 2002 Chevy Avalanche. Loved that truck but gave it to my 16 year old son. I just bought this a couple of weeks ago. Truck.jpg
