I need to jump in and ask a quick question for my first post. I have been on one type or another set of two wheels for a number of years but have been out of the dirt for a while. My first new bike was a DR 400 back in the early 80es, I think I was into dual sporting before there was such a term. Recently I happened upon a DRZ 125 that I have brought back to life that really does it's best to pull me around even though I weigh in at 240 pounds. I have a small farm with hills that I like to ride around on. On a recent trip to my local motorcycle dealer which has some older bikes to look through I spotted a sad looking DR that looks to be mostly all there. Would any of you take on bringing one of these back to life or move on to something newer? It seemed to have compression, I didn't try to start it, when I asked about it they laughed and said they had it running but it smoked real bad, I was thinking muffler full of oil after falling over. Anyway hand levers are broke seat has holes and who knows what else, was told $300.00.
