I had 2 DRZ400sm's. And loved the first as much as the second. Between the 2 I put over $1000 into them easy.

Hell I had a grand into the second one and still only got it to around 37 hp.

The bang for buck is what made me get the KTM finally. To get my DRZ to where I wanted it to be would have cost as much if not more. And at that point I could not be certain on how dependable it would be. But for $7500 I have brembo's all around,slipper clutch, WP suspension and 50 Plus hp(They claim 64hp, but mid 50's is real world). And it feels so mauc like the DRZ. I say it feels like the DRZ on its best day. When everything is working to its max. I dropped 4 seconds off my best lap the first time I rode it. Cheating? Maybe. But I love it almost as much as my DRZ. I am sure once I have a fw track days under my belt and the new bike smell is off it, I will love it completely. I hate break in.

It's great gettiing a wife that rides until she goes down near you. It's like women in combat. Watching a woman get real hurt is hard. Harder then watching a guy go down. I saw a girl I know break her back at a track day. The day was over. If it was a guy he would have flown off a d we would have went on riding.

My sister was killed last august on her r6. She was almost 50 a retired cop. Driving to the mall. Hit head on by a kid in her own lane. He was 16. First day driving alone. I am not against girls on bikes. It just hurts tooooo much when they get hurt.

Yep, I do keep that in the back of my mind. We still have 2 young children and if something happened to me, at least they'd still have their mother, but if we both got seriously injured or killed it would leave the kids with no parents. Not to mention I've been riding since I was 5yrs old and my wife has never ridden a motorcycle, so I'd want her to learn on an off road bike to begin with.

I still love Debi's pic with them taking the corner side by side :)

Well into the five digit range. Check my garage for an idea.

Dennis - My heart goes out to you and your sister. She worked at the same place I do.

Back on to a high note. I can't wait to see how we go down the straight at Pocono this year. You destroyed me on my DRZ. I think this season with the KTM we will be evenly matched when you throw my weight into the Power to weight ratio.
