My "new-2-me" ride...pretty excited

Hey all

Let me start by saying hellooooo from the "great white north, eh!"

This is my first official post, however, I have been lurking around TT for months now, reading, and gaining information as to the right bike to buy.

What a great site!!!

Well, about a 2 months ago I bit the bullet, and upgraded my 1990 DR350, and finally picked up a "new to me" ride.

A 2003 DRZ400S

14,000 kilometers on the clock.

Bought from the second owner

It was totally stock,( with the exception of the GEL Seat ) when I picked it up, and it's not so much anymore, as I try to make it my own.

The bike is in the shop today getting "certified" for the road, ( which will include new chain, sprockets, and tires ), and I hope that is it!

Oh yes, and for the record, I have officially been bitten by the stupid "Mod big"

So far to date, I have added to following.

Kouba lowering Link

Edge 2 LED Taillight, w/ mini blinkers

New Blade Barz

400SM headlight surround, and rear fender.

Unabiker rad guards

Moose River Skid plate

TT Case Guards.

and a Billet Power Tip ( not yet installed...after safety )

I am sure there will be more to come as the wallet allows, but so far so good, and I am just so happy to get an Electric

Thanks for reading
