Moto-Resto DR650 - Farkle Remorse?

I bought this Suzuki DR650s new in 1996 when I was living in Atlanta and rode it regularly until 2009... Late in 2019 I started a resurrection/restoration project on it...

Did I buy some items that, in hindsight, I regret?

Well yes, you betcha, but we all suck at predicting the future. And I may still use some of those things. But that's such a tiny weight against the balance of what ProCycle provided, from the impressive collection of information to custom parts with testing and support.

So ProCycle, with your yellow website and odd wishlist user-interface, I just want to declare [agape] love for you.

Awesome organization of so many options and pricing all in one place... All-seeing support on DRRiders... videos and downloadable docs...

Excellent order tracking... great packing and swift delivery... you are a joy to do business with - don't ever change!
