    New thumper in the garage. Smaller than the DR650SE traded-in on the Kawasaki Versys. Bigger than the TW200 still in the garage. I liked the Standard Japanese Motorcycle format of the SR400. A 500 would have be preferred. The "runner up" option was a Suzuki S40.  It was just a bit too "squatty" and still employs a standard carburetor. SR400 is fuel-injected. A better option in my neighborhood at 4600 ft elevation. It's my "big kid" scooter. I have a Harley Fat Bob, Yamaha Roadliner, Kawasaki Versys, Harley Sportster and Kawasaki VN900 if a freeway trip is required.  When fully broken in, the bike can achieve 95 MPH at the RPM limit. Local freeways are 80 MPH, so it would be pushing hard all the time. The roadbikes are loafing at that speed. The SR400 is a fine bike for local streets.

    My only dual sport. It hasn't rolled on the road since May 2009. I've held onto it thus far as my option to go play in the dirt.  All the other bikes in the garage are street only machines.
