Hi! I'm new here and I really appreciate the forums; it really is a big help for a guy like me looking to get back onto a bike after not having one for a long time. This is a killer website; GOOD JOB
I'm looking for my first dual purpose bike; I've looked at the KLR 650 and 250. Now I'm looking at the DRZ 400. I'm not really interested in hardcore dirt riding; I want to go far into the boonies, not up the tallest hill or past the other guy. I plan to ride 20 miles to work during the week and on the weekends take a day or two trip on the bike ususally to remote places away from civilization to relax and explore and maybe get a little better at the dirt riding. My main concerns so far are comfort and fit; I'm 5'7" tall with about a 32" inseam, I demand that I be able to sit flat footed on my bike, also I demand that my seat be comfortable enough to make me WANT to ride my bike every chance I get. I've read the forums on the DRZ400 and it sounds like a great bike for me; I just need to be able to customize mine (when I get it) to fit me. Any suggestions?
