Well good folks, I have finally done it. Bought a 2019 DR650se and sold my XT225.

I will never forget the XT, and I am sure I will have fond memories of good times on that bike, and great advice and discussions around here.

So, a final thank you to everyone here for being such a great community!

Who knows, I might be back on an XT some day. I know it has happened to others.

Until then, keep the rubber side down - I wish you all the best!

Cogitech, all the best to you with your new DR650. I trust it fits the riding you intend to do with it. Rode one a couple of years back. Powerful bike, but much too large for my tastes. I suppose you get used to it, although I'd hate to tackle our local backcountry trails on a bike that big and heavy! ..Be safe out there, and check in now and then to let us know how things are going.

Door is always open here should you want to drop in and say hi. Nothing wrong with being a former XT owner and switching bikes. Happens all the time and certainly doesn't create any exclusions here. Ride safely.

Perhaps this will be me in a few years. Only time will tell.

In its stock form, it is too large for me as well. However, now that it is lowered I find it very manageable and I just received a Seat Concepts LOW foam and cover kit for it, which will result in me being able to easily "flat feet" the bike. Weight wise, I honestly can't say that I notice it all that much (I suspect that will become more apparent the first time I drop it). I've had it on some trails and did fine. It'll be better off road once I get some more aggressive rubber and install a 14T front sprocket.

Already do! The power/torque is infectious.

Thank you sir! I'll stop in from time to time.
