This is a newbie question...
I have recently come across a blue 2003 DRZ400s for sale in North Vancouver, B.C. The bike is selling for a fairly good price. The bike is completely modded out with a steering damper, jet kit, rad guards etc, etc... but has been ridden almost entirely off road and has about 5000kms on it. The owner says he has had some spills off road and has ridden in harsh weather conditions (snow...streams) but has fixed all the parts frequently although there are still some bends and dents in the plastic including a messed up headlight and muffler but they are fully operational. He has always changed the fluids including the brake fluid when required and the oil on a regular basis.
I'm new to dual sports as I've been a sport rider since day one and I know almost nothing about the pricing of dual sport bikes and of course I'm expecting an off-road bike to have much more dings in it. How much should it go for and is it worth purchasing as I cannot tell how much abuse the bike has taken?
My plans are to use the bike 75 percent off road and 25 percent on road (to get to the trails!)
