Have I lost it completely? I'm debating trading-in or selling my '99 zx-9r and getting a DRZ-400 SM somewhere '06-'09.
I've had all enduro bikes in the past cause I love the all-purpose-ness and ruggedness of them. The only time I've been down on the road was on my TTR250 and all I had to do was pick it back up and continue. If I drop my zx9r I'm screwed, I can't afford to fix it.
Also, the enduro/SM style you can get your thrills below speeds that make you lose your license, the 9r goes fast enough in 2nd for me to lose it and my license instantly (im in ON, with brutal street racing laws), and if i screw around with wheelies and stuff on it I'm too worried about dropping it.
The SM insurance would be cheaper, cause its only 400, and it would cost me less in speeding tickets.
What do you guys think?
