Hi. To clarify I mean were you disappointed with the other bike NOT with the DRZ Over the past couple months I have had a chance to ride a few bikes that would be considered higher performance than my KLX400SR (the green DRZ400S). One was an RMZ250 set up for woods and the other was a KLX450R. Don't get me wrong they were both lighter and more nimble then my bike but: - I found the RMZ to be really vibey. Yes it was light and fast for a 250cc but I felt totally disconnected from the bike - The KLX450R was certainly faster but felt really vague to me and a bit rough as it revved up. Last weekend I went on a ride on a hare scrambles course. It was a fun ride but most of us were riding like it was a race. The woods were super tight but I was so impressed with my bike. Great traction on the slippery/rooty ruts. Yes it's heavy as hell and my arms are sore but so be it. I think the thing that stands out most with the DRZ400/KLX400 is that you feel every power pulse as it hooks up and thrusts you forward. The engine is just so smooth and tractable compared to anything else I have ridden. Much of my enjoyment of a bike is linked to feel and these heavy beasts feel good.Granted I have never ridden a big 4stroke Husky, KTM WR etc Just wondering if anyone else has had the same experience.
