Happy new dualsport owner here! I've had street bikes (cruisers), and quads, but never a dirt bike before...
I picked up a super clean 2006 DR-Z400S with 3k miles on it a couple weeks ago. The PO had been using it for commuting and from the looks of it, I don't think it's even gotten dirty too many times... but that's about to change!
I plan to use it probably 70% on desert trails, 30% on road (getting to trails and just riding around town sometimes), and 10% occasional touring. I did a fair amount of research before buying and specificly got the DRZ becuase of it's "not perfect for anything, but good at everything" demeanor.
Here's some pics from my first ride out of town:
and with black/silver, it matches my other adventure tourer:
It came with the following:
Acerbis black plastics (which was planned as my first mod anyway!) I already have a list of things I want as as I soon as I can afford:
Clarke desert tank (which would have been my second mod!)
White brothers exhaust
3x3 air box mod
Dynojet jet kit
Tusk aluminum handguards
Clear mini rear turn signals
Trimmed up rear taillight surround plastic
Avon Distancia tires with only 300 miles on them (for sale if anyone wants them)
Knobbies (maybe the D606?)
Boots (already have helmet/goggles from the quad days)
Side Case Guards (the ones on ebay without logos)
Radiator guards (unabiker i guess)
Small rack (probably this one
Skidplate (i like the Devol)
The plastic shields for the Tusk handguards
SM style front fender
Luggage (probably a Giant Loop, and Fastboy bag on the front fender)
