Hey I am looking at selling my Sv650s and purchasing a street legal motard of some sorts. I ride year round and I don’t really do any heavy commuting.
To the motard riders out there:
Do they work good as a year round bike?
I do a lot of rides in the summer, mostly baker twice a week, what is the fuel consumption like? Do I have to worry about running out of fuel (mileage/long distance riding)?
What are the insurance costs like?
I am tall, like 6 foot 6 tall, they okay for taller people?
Is it easier to buy a 400-450 dirtbike and buying a kit to make it street legal or buying a bike like a drz which is already legal?
Overall Pros and Cons.
Also, do you guys have any good makes and models to recommend?
DRZ 400sm? (the 400E is the dirt version and the 400sm the same but street legal?)
