I intend to use my DRZ for short commutes and joy riding, possibly some motorcycle camping and as much trail riding as I can possibly find
Sounds like the perfect bike for you.
1. Stock springs will be very undersprung for your size and aggressive riding.
2. All reputable helmets must have reach safety requirements. I prefer an open face (with breath guard) but it is a personal choice.
3. Good price OTD.
4. You will be disappointed with lack power .....purchase jet kit before judging bike.
5. search mototune engine break in right now before you pick the bike up.
Congratulations..... You are going to love it!!!
