    haha I know right! Honestly I won't ever buy another DRZ unless I get a smokin deal on a used one. There's too many must haves missing for me. 6 speed, heavy, loud engine, tranny would randomly drop a gear sometimes, and quite a few "must have" mods to make it reliable. I enjoyed my 09 klx250s more even though it was a little more down on power.

    Finally Upgraded! FZ07

    haha it's fun.. Actually took it on a ride up to Mt. Lassen with my sport bike buddies and it was actually pretty comfortable. Cruises fine at about 55-57 and up to 63-64 tucked. It's light and flickable, corners well. Ultimately want to put dual sport tires on it, make a skid plate, and stiffen up the front forks. My next dual sport :-)

    Finally Upgraded! FZ07

    I haven't done much twisties on it yet but so far it's much more fun than the SM.. Having that power coming out of the corners is so fun! So far I made my own rear fender delete. Gotta finish it when the plate gets here. And put a USB charge port on it. Want to re-flash the ECU when they come out with something and put a 2 bros pipe on it when they make one. Yamaha makes some really nice accessories for the bike that I want. Including saddlebags.

    It's got way more power than the drz that's for sure lol I can't even imagine what the 09 is like. Doesn't even seem like it would be enjoyable with that much power. I can come around a corner in 2nd and hit and the front wheel comes off the ground. Not to mention 50-60mpg is nice

    So most of you know my 14' drz got stolen. Luckily insurance covered everything. About a month ago picked up a Honda Grom just to fart around on and Saturday picked up a 15' FZ07 :-) I wanted a FZ09 but insurance was going to be $1900 a year! No thanks.. 07 is only $700 a year. And bike was $8026 OTD. Really liking it so far! Much more power than I thought it would have. 3rd gear clutch up wheelies no problem.

    Ya if I get a VFR it won't be for a while lots of $$ and that makes sense how you mentioned about being expensive to work on. I will probably just get a fz09 or fz07. Kind of leaning towards the 09, I don't want to buy a bike and spend that money and then wish it had more power when I could of just spent another grand on it

    I bought the grom.. I could go get a fz07 but I'm gonna wait a while. Got some other debt to pay off. Looks like the DRZ is gonna be paid off without the option to buy back. It's kinda confusing. But I can't give them money to buy it back I have to have enough extra after its paid off. But we will see. I just sent my insurance guy a list of aftermarket parts I should get paid back for. That's what he said anyway

    I'm kind of torn now, although I won't be getting a new bike anytime soon. I started thinking about getting a bike that would be really comfortable for long rides yet sporty looking. Although the price is about $5000 more than a fz07 it sure looks soooo sick!! And you could ride all day on it. 2014 Honda VFR 800 Interceptor

    It's almost like its so slow its fun!? Haha it's strictly a commuter for now. Ya I'm torn between the fz09 and fz07, such good reviews on both! The 09 has ridiculous power but the 07 still has good power too.. With 55mpg.. Hmm...

    haha nice! Those are awesome! I had a 04 Zuma and it was a blast! Probly accelerated faster than the grom but slower top speed
