    Nice 4 stroke for my off road adventures and races. This is quite a bit different than the TE300 I had prior. As one would imagine. It feels lighter but I'm still working on the handling part. Power is perfect and really like the fact of a launch control in addition to the traction control and 2 different maps.

    The perfect winter-commuter, but the electronics seem to be vulnerable to cold, in the -10 deg's C range and lower.

    Cute little 100cc single. Old and sluggish, but a great little cruiser. My wife and I have a matching pair that we ride on the groomed gravel roads and some light trails. Not fast or spunky, but they are a great weekend ride.

    This bike is a super easy bike to ride. I took it out on exactly the same trail as my usual old WR250F and was able to ride it with more speed and confidence. I was expecting the Suzuki to be more difficult to ride with the stiffer springs, heavier weight and bigger engine but the opposite was true.
    The thing that really set the two bikes apart was the confident handling at the front end of the Suzuki. Whenever it hit a large rock I could find the front deflected to an extent and having to steer the bike back onto the trail. The Yamaha tends to get horribly rattled on the same obstacles. It feels like the wheel gets deflected sideways and it's a violent, slipping over feeling (to be fair to the WR it could be a suspension problem and I plan to work on it).
    The heavier weight of the DR-Z gives it a stable feel on the trail and irons out the stiff bumps somewhat. The only time the extra weight was really noticeable was when the bike was airborne and flicked a bit. The suspension was smooth, responsive and predictable.
    The engine was very smooth, with plenty of torque. It's also pretty responsive for a 400cc single and I'm keen to see what it's like when worn in. Minimal gear changes were necessary since the sweet spot is huge. What it puts up with before it stalls makes it very learner friendly.
    The ergonomics are very comfy for my height. The height of the bike (with stock seat, sag not set) was very comfortable with my 80cm (31.5") inseam. I found my back a little fatigued standing with the stock handlebars, but I did have a tendency to try to get my weight back on this bike. I can't really explain why I was doing that, I can only guess it's because it's geometry feels different to what I'm used to and I'm compensating unnecessarily. The ergonomics of the Suzuki actually seem more suited to my size than the WR250F (2002), which seems like it's for someone a little taller.
    A negative is the lack of a 6th gear. For trail riding it doesn't need one, but if you want a bike you can ride on the highway and the trails (which is pretty much the purpose of road legal dirt bike) this would be something that would make you look around rather than get this bike. The looks of this bike are ok, but not stunning. You know it's a dual sport from the looks. The stock graphics are attractive and minimalist. If you buy at the right time of year (pre-Christmas promotions) they throw in a bonus enduro kit by redemption with spark arrestor, Suzuki bash plate, Suzuki radiator guards and Barkbusters 'Ego' hand guards. The Ego model is a low profile small model meant for shorty levers. The stock DR-Z doesn't have shorty levers so I think 'Jet' would have been a better choice so that there is no buzzing against them. The bash plate also makes a hideous rattling noise that turns heads. It was coming from the rear bracket rattling against the cross-member it rests on and I can't do it up any firmer or adjust it. So I solved the problem with a piece of foam beer can cozy.

    The rider:
    5'8"
    65 kg (143 lb)
    39 year old female
    Moderate fitness level
    Intermediate level trail rider

    The bike set up:
    It has an SDG tall seat and Moose Hybrid footpegs with rear offset as the only aftermarket changes.
    The exhaust and jetting are unchanged and the road restrictor remains installed in the muffler.

    Only ridden it about an hour.
    Power is GREAT, surprisingly good handling and suspension (a bit soft tho) or an old bike. Front brakes don't do anything (I think the pads are contaminated-new ones coming) rear is fine.
    Was down on compression ( 90ish psi despite supposedly having a recent rebuild) so I've pulled it down to bore, replace the piston, and do the mains and a rod kit.
    Trying Wossner stuff (piston and rod) which I've never used before.

    I like the bike a lot and I can't wait to put more hours in, then eventually modify it once I know how it is stock.

    I took my 13 350 sxf that was street legal, and swapped out the 430hour engine for a 360 hour 08 300xc engine from my 08 300xc and created Frankenbike. Built Dec 2017raced and ridden in many places. Prob has 500 on frame 400 +hour on the engine. 2nd piston, original bottom end, with some upgrades. This bike is my favorite bike I've ever ridden. I ride nasty single track and race Enduro and some hare scramble. Love to ride the nasty stuff though.

    Another gem found on Craigslist a few weeks ago (October 2018.) I'm in the process of restoring it for my kids. Some might look at it and say it's trashed, but the engine still has 90 psi on a compression test. I'm tracking down OEM parts on-line and after a thorough re-build, it will be a nice little vintage quad.

    A blast to ride around, even for a 180# 71" adult.  More importantly, son #1 seems to love it!
