Well I've been lurking for several months. After selling my 2000 KTM 640 Dual Sport a few years back I found that I couldn't exist without a dual sport. My biggest challenge finding the right bike was that I hoped to share the bike with my very capable riding wife (she rides an FZ1 on the street!). She is much shorter that I & the only stock bike that seemed to fit her was a DR650. But I just couldn't warm up to the DR650. A couple of weeks ago I stopped by a dealer on the wet side of Washington state who had just taken a like-new DRZ400s in on trade. It was a 2005 with a Corbin seat (equals lower seat height) with just 3,000 miles that had never been off road. It looked brand new. I test rode it & bought it on the spot. It's been great! Today, I installed a decent luggage rack & lowering links. I also slid the front forks down 3/4". It now fits my wife. I'm looking forward to exploring back roads again & riding in the dirt with my two kids on their TTR125's! The ironic thing is, when I tried to buy a DRZ400 in 2000, I couldn't find one so I bought the KTM! Now, looking back, I should have bought the DRZ in the first place!
