Pending mileage I may just have to grab that! Maybe I can find a sport bike up there too and kill 2 birds with one stone on a drive up there. Thanks noose!

PS: Why didn't you end up buying it?

Check out supermotojunkie.com for the best answers from motard riders and reviews. I personally would recommend for street use a hybird. Pure motards like the 250-550 cc's are mostly race engines and require MUCH more maintence than you are likely to want to do, and engine rebuilds. THe Husky 610, and SMC 690 would like be perfect... or you can go hybrid like the KTM 950 SM, or 690 Duke... they are more street bike with motard roots.

i didnt buy because i was counting my chickens before they hatched, lol. i thought i had a guy ready to buy my bike for a little less than what this guy was asking, and about the time i figured i'd be signing the title over to him, he decided he wanted a cruiser :P

also, have you ridden one? i rode an s model and i didnt like the ergos. too upright, like sitting at a desk or something. i might be too tall, so that could explain it. i'm like 6 feet and some change.

dallas and san antonio seem to have a lot better prices than houston. also a lot of good bikes on dallas.

Yeah I've been scanning Dallas and I'm most likely grabbing a bike from there Monday. I'd like to do both at the same time to save gas but that drz guy hasn't replied to my email yet. Do you have an alternate contact method for him by any chance?

Almost ANY single is going to require more intensive maintenance than a multi, especially in Motard form where you're likely to be wringing it's neck.

Plan on increased oil change and valve adjustment frequency, although by their nature most are not difficult / expensive to do.

The biggest problem I've had / seen with Motards is that they're so fun to ride it's difficult to stay off of them long enough to do the maintenance.

As far as best "street" motard, the DRZ400SM, although down a bit on power compared to the rest of the field, seems to hold up pretty well.
Another good choice would have to be the KTM.
