I went to the local Suzuki dealership this last weekend and was surprised at how high that monster DRZ is! My first bike was an old Honda CB400 (70's) that I had in college just to get me (barely) around Boston. I'm 36 now and looking to get into some dual sporting adventure on the weekends and holidays. As you may imagine the DRZ400s is my top pick, but I (don't laugh) was scared to even try and get on the thing at the dealership worrying that I might actually fall over trying to get on it. I'm 5'9 with an inseam of just over 34". Am I being a wimp or should I try out a 250CC bike for a season until I feel comfortable riding again? I'll note I raced BMX bikes, was a bike courier and have been on serious trails on a mountain bike for a good while, so I'm comfortable on 2 wheels, but not motorized necessarily. Reflections, thoughts?
