That's a great example you have there of an original DTRW.  There won't be many like that left in that condition.  Good to see you get on the pipe there - I would imagine it hasn't had much of that in it's 28,000km life!  Sounds awesome.

That's pretty cool.  It's such a foreign sight for many of us to have the area you live in and the riding areas under so much snow.  Foot down on those icy corners - wooohoo.  I've done some high country snow riding, it's hard work and fecking cold!

Thanks guys!
It's fun to ride in the snow. I just need to order new rear tire, cheap chinese tire + Pro Gold studs were not good combination. ~150km's of riding and it's dead. I think tire is too hard and studs won't hold up, many of them have fly away and others are almost worn out. Next I'll try professional made Mitas tire with rally car studs. One friend of mine has one in his KTM EXC300 and he said it's really good tyre. In the front I have Trelleborg enduro studded tire, which I bought from swap meet for 20€. It has awesome grip anywhere.
And yes, with that Doma pipe it's awesome runner. It goes anywhere where I wan't to. :D


Thanks.

Some snowy pics from couple last days:




And yeah, I left a mirror on the shelf, it is not very essential equipment when riding in the woods.

Thanks,

Just been riding. And riding. And riding...

Did some heavy carb adjustments month ago, now it runs really sweet.

It's always fun to take little adventure with this little bike. :D

   Great pictures Antti! Thanks for sharing! What do you think of the bike in general, now you've had it for some time? Compared to the IT?



   Cheers, Fanis

Well, only thing what I miss from IT, was that front wheel lifting power peak. Overal this is much better. Power comes out smoothly, low end torque is good, suspension works nicely. It feels good even on tarmac roads. 100-110km/h is fine speed for this, IT felt like it blows up anytime in same speed.

Seat height feels like it is little bit too low for me. If I've understood right, WR seat is little bit higher?
