I am looking at buying a Suzuki DR650. I will be working in the mines and will use the bike to ride too and from Rockhampton (120km each way) once every 5 days...so too Rocky once in 5 days then back in another 5 days. I will also ride back to Brisbane 620km and then back to Rocky once a month or so. So all up in a month probably 2000km roughly. Is this bike goign to be able to handle this kind of work? Will it sit at highway speeds well enough? Will it be cost effective to run? How often do they need to be serivced? Is this expensive? As you can see, I am very new to this so have a few questions. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
