Hey what’s going on guys, it’s been a while. Haven’t really been on here nearly as much as I used to be, but have popped in every now and again to see what’s up. It’s nice to see from viewing some of the threads that a lot of the regulars that I remember are still active. I often think about when I was here, made daily posts and how fun it was to talk about these bikes with you all. I think I pretty much almost knew the DRZ inside and out! Just kind of doing a little remembrance thing of my ‘ol Dizzer. A year ago today I sold the DRZ. I remember the day very well, the owner who bought it and watching it go up the street. 7,300 miles and change was the number and I put just about every one of those miles on it as I bought her new. A sad day it was to see a bike that had brought so much enjoyment, new friends and many, many wonderful riding memories that I will always cherish. Yet, it was exciting at the same time because I was prepared to embark on a new relationship with a different bike. It was a decision that I had spent a lot of time on and definitely not one that I made overnight. As much as I loved it, I was ready to move up to a bigger street bike, simply put. I have really enjoyed ownership of the Z1. It is totally different to ride than the DRZ. I bought it from the original owner with low miles in pretty much all stock condition. I have done some things to it; you can compare how it looked from when I first got it to how it looks today. I’ve put about 3k miles or so on it, and have had some good rides with it such as riding hwy 1 along the coast this past summer as well as some touring with it. I’ve included a couple photos in remembrance of the DRZ as well as some of my current bike. When I first got it. How it looks today.
