See the other thread I tagged you about the gear setup I got which would also serve as a hot weather on-road alternative. I'm not terribly happy with the fit/finish of the jacket, namely the pockets and velcro, but it is inexpensive, serves the purpose and is extremely well vented.
As for the #dr650se
, I bought almost everything from the DR650SE ProCycle page:
Things I bought that I thought were necessary were:
IMS 4.9 Gallon Tank - range for the DR is insufficient
Matching locking Gas Cap
Aluminum Skid Plate - my bike actually had this already. This is a must.
Giant Loop Fandango Water Proof Tank bag - this thing rocks.
Wolfman Side Racks - for mounting their soft waterproof luggage.
Wolfman Waterproof Saddlebags
Pat Walsh Designs Rack - rear luggage rack. Rocks
Stash Box Lock LIcense Plate Box - for registration, insurance,etc
Tool roll from Bob's that just fits
Tube Tire Patch kit
Combo wrench/Tire Irons - wiretied to rack, sized for front and rear axle nuts.
Spare levers - also wiretied to the rack
Nice additions I thought:
Sargent World Sport Seat, Lowered, which I got primarily in the hopes that it would make the bike more guest-rider friendly notably for AGrip
SW-Motech Center Stand - nice to have but not a necessity.
Wolfman Waterproof top bag - if going on week+ trip
Wolfman RotoPax Kit for mounting extra water/fuel
Vision Solstice 10W LED light and mounting brackets X 2 - wicked light.
LED Tail Light Replacement to save some wattage
Handle bar themometer
From Aerostich I picked up a battery monitor because I'm paranoid:
A precise, continuous way to monitor your bike s alternator output and battery condition. An essential instrument if your bike has bigger or extra lights, or other powered accessories. Its solid state, waterproof, ultra compact design is extremely durable
And lastly I picked up a BMW style power adaptor to put on the handlebar :
If you seriously are considering joining us on one of these upcoming adventures, I'll make you an offer. Drop the bike off here and I'll prep it for you and make sure it's ready. Since you'd be travelling with us in a group, you won't need the full set of kit for it since we'll have a number of duplicates. You could get away with not getting the bigger tank and instead just getting the extra gallon of fuel for the rotax. I carry enough drinking water on my bike (1 gallon) to last us between water refill stops.
As a minimum, I'd get the tank bag, side luggage, rotax fuel container (if not getting the larger tank), skid plate and rear rack.
