huskies are crap go w/ japanese:rockon
Yeah I saw that one but as I said my budget is limited right now so I was going to either sell my F4i and use the money to buy a SM or trade it straight across. Based on what you guy's said there's a pretty good chance I'll put one more season on the F4i and save my pennies in the meantime.Whats wrong with this ??? is it because you want to trade in ? http://www.bcsportbikes.com/forum/showthread.php?t=82596&highlight=Super+Moto
Thanks for the offer Vrecksler. I might take you up on it but not till at least april when I get mine on the road. I wouldn't feel right ridin yours if you weren't ridin mine beside me.96ZX7R, I agree with WILD, the DRZ is as good a bike as any based on what you have described.
I commuted from Cloverdale to UBC for two years on a converted DRZ S; that is ~100km a day, with the majority of that freeway. I changed the oil, adjusted the chain, and kept filling the tank....that is pretty much it. Take a look at one, and if you want to throw a leg over one just PM me. We are both in Cloverdale so you can take it for a rip and see what you think.
- The insurance on a 400c will be the same (equal declared value) as the smaller 250cc.
- The DRZ engine can take as much punishment as you can throw at it
- The bike comes ready to ride
I hear ya getoffdagrid. That is my biggest worry, that I sell mine get a SM and regret it. The problem is I've never riden a SM and haven't riden a dirtbike in 20+ yrs so it's going to be a leap of faith. Sure I could take one for a 20 minute test ride but with my limited experience I don't know if I can trust my initial impression to last for any real length of time. I could get on one and initially love it (or hate it) but without owning one I won't know what my long term feeling would be.hey 96zx7r, i would hold on to the sportbike for a while after you get a motard just in case its not what you expect it to be. i recently picked up a drz sm, and while it is a great bike, i couldnt imagine having it as my only bike, just for the fact that if youre a sportbike guy you'll soon realize the limits of only having a motard.
That was what I figured Bill. I'd be lyin if I said the wheelie factor wasn't a big draw for me as well. My first choice would be a Husky 610, 450 or 510. They look sic and I've read nothing but good things about them but I've yet to see a used one and the new ones are too pricey for me to take a chance on. The DRZ is my second choice just because there's a greater chance of finding a used one. I just figured the KLX would be a way to try this style of ridin out without tieing up too much cash and still get to own something brand new which really appealed to me.KLX 250 is OK as a motard but it gets old quick. You'll want something bigger and faster in very little time. I HAd a YZF 250 motard and it was fun for tight track practice but any place where there is a straight away all the 400/450's will blow by you.
Also the wheelie factor on a 250 is not as much fun. It will do endless wheelies but the 450's will do it any time any gear. Which is about 80% of the fun in street ripping.
