    Hi guys,.I haven't been on much latley,.I'm from Ashland Co. Oh. I too have been down to H.M.,.I rode mostly with the 4 wheeled crowd,.mostly black trails,..they wanted to see if I could ride,.the drz is a billygoat,.I won't say it was a cake walk,.but I survived,..wonderful place to ride,.plan for a few days if you can,.We rode at the Rocky fork or something trailhead,.been two years almost,..the mind is the first to go,....would love to go back with some two wheeled fellows,be sure you have plenty of bash protection for the bike also,..I got by fine with the stock range of my bike,.just depends how much you hone on it!!

    Stroker VS Big Bore Debate!!

    Hey I don't want to throw a wet blanket on all this big bore-n-stroke party,.and I do realize this topic mainly has to do with the sm guys,.but out on the trails can a mere mortal really need more than the stock drz 400 has to offer,?..I got a few minor mods on mine,..and it's got power a plenty!!

    weight offroad

    Hi, I'm coming at you from a little different place,.I ride the 'k' model drz 400 dirt only , I can tell you that this is most likely the 'lightest' of the drzs [no battery,starter,ect,.] just a 4 stroke dirt bike,.I wont fib and say it's a flick able fire breathing trail beast,but what it is is an almost unstoppable trail bike,.weight is good for traction,if I could stay on the back of this thing it would go up a tree! after addressing some of the common faults the bike is near bullet proof. there is a reason the drz forum is the largest,.the bike can damn near do it all,..torque is king on the trails,.not rpms,.but with the drz you will not want for either!!

    Hey Goebz, well a funny thing happened on the way to Crow Canyon, I got out voted so we ended up going to Elson street trails instead. We had a pretty good time though,..well most of the time anyway,..the system there at times is very tight,..also no trail markings that can be used for navigation,.the parts we have been on before were fun but the tight woods places my daughter had some trouble,. ..momentum and rpms are your best friend on a 125 I informed her, but lack of seat time this year,..has taken it's toll,..my how boyfriends eat into the time well spent on more useful endeavorers. Oh the DRZ,..IT WAS THE S### . ,ran like a scalded cat,..let my friend take it for a spin,[he's a 125 guy too],..couldn't get him off it,..he has seen the light!! new yosh pipe sounded and performed great,.ran it uncorked!! We plan a trip to Crow Canyon next month.I haven't been to Newcomerstown what's the name of the park?.,ect..I'm in Ashland co.
