So on this past thanksgiving morning i was doing a street ride alongside my dad and was rear ended by a lady going about 50mph. Luckily i sustained very few injuries with nothing worse than a banged up knee, some whiplash, and a few chipped teeth. My HJC full face saved me and my Geirke mesh jacket saved my skin. Anyway the DRZ was considered totaled and i could have bought it back but decided i did not want to repair the bike. So i was given 5500 bucks for the bike and gear and now own a KDX220 which i took out for the first time last week. This thing runs great and is my first two stroke ever besides a little 50cc scooter i owned when i was 15. I got the kdx for 1400 bucks and is pretty good shape. it has the FMF gnarly pipe and everything else seems stock. The kdx has great power and with its lighter weight really is fun on the trails. I do miss the drz dearly but the change has not left me wanting too terribly. the drz held up great and did not really sustain to much damage other than the swing arm and rear end being destroyed and all the miscellaneous scratches and dents everywhere. i will keep checking the drz forums because alot of the info translates well into other dirtbike models and its just fun to read the cool stuff you guys do to the drz. Well here is a couple pics of the dead drz and the new kdx.
