After putting my hands all over Dan's Chinese motorcycle... no thanks. Might as well light the money on fire.

I thought dan was happy with his?  I'm looking at used ones that smell like burnt money already. The lack of 6the gear on most of them is a big neg. efi model for either a plus.

Dan was happy with the second engine. 

I think for putting around town it would have been fine. There is no way it would have made his trip in one piece. The quality just isn't there. 

I call these Chinese knockoffs "MSO".

Pauly is right. The first motor on my RX3 never ran right. Sticky (stuck) intake valve. The replacement motor he installed ran better from the get-go. But no, after riding it 35,000 hard miles in two seasons prepping for this journey I decided the 250 just didn’t have the guts I wanted (note I didn’t say “needed” because you can ride the world on anything). Going uphill into the wind loaded with gear it struggled. 
CSC sells the newer RX4 450 version that makes more power than the DR. 

But I’m happy with the decision I made on bike choice. And happy with how the build went. She’s fairly unique and has been a pleasure, and a comfortable place to spend the day.

I've already owned and broke the 3rd gear on a DR. Just considering  something different and lighter with a dirt focus but not needing trailered.

My honda vtwin VTR 250 would struggle up steep hills. I did one so bad and long I thought the engine had blown because it had so much grunt on flats.
