if u put on barkbusters u wont even have to do that. just pick it up, start it and get back at it.

Fyi in case you don't realize it... besides the Aprilia motard (which is really expensive and many issues, quite the cost)... the motard is plain and simple raved about as the best hooligan/screaming/racing/peg dragging/rear wheel sliding/wheelie/stoppie/ and everything else machine ever. Riders who own this claim it is the most insane, like your on speed, riding experince that you can't ever keep two wheels on the ground. Look at the power to weight ratio! It's LIGHT.

If you are willing to deal with some increased maintenance schedules I'd tell you right now that is a twistie and hooligan monster machine.

when you learn to 'ride' wheelies... you learn the "bounce and clutch" timing...

drz ftw. come to the south side and your welcome to ride mine. i got a handbrake and cut outs for stunt purposes. i can bounce it up in 5th as well. only bad thing is the highway issue. but you said you already had one so you know about that. i wouldnt get a motocross bike and convert it because it is a race bike. it will over heat at lights and you will be replacing top ends like crazy. just not a good bike if it is your only transportation in my opinion. and there is plenty of aftermarket for the drz. i got a 09 with 5k miles already and i have no problems. just bein changin oil and tires.

I didn't see it mentioned yet so I'll go ahead and ask. . .How comfortable are you with performing your own maintenance?(oil changes and valve checks?) If you want a fire breathing hot rod you'll have to learn to check valves and change oil religiously or cough up the cash to have it done. personally, I don't mind doing the maintenance that comes with a high performance machine, but some do. Based on my experience and what you're looking for i would say the DRZ is the right bike for you. . .Bulletproof and buildable and reasonably priced for what you get.

+1 i tried to say that with my post but it got lost. a race ready bike is just that a race bike. not every day cruiser.

and the handbrake wasnt bad. fullthrottle sells kits for the wr the drz and the crf. it was 200 for the banjo the master and the stainless line.

ya any kind of maintenance on these bikes would be no problem for me.. i've re-done and re-built my fair share of thumper engines engines so these kinds of things i'm pretty comfortable with..

i'm really wanting to ride one of these bikes now..
