Put out a sumo with those things no longer an issue and I'd have one... Very soon.
Most likely I will end up with a DRZ 400. I have another friend that is going to let me borrow his soon.

So you've still got a carburetor and spoked wheels..

Re: Holy crap! I love this bike!

Man that bike is so comfy! Put 232 miles on it this weekend. I notice the power lag going up the canyons which makes me wonder if the 650 would fit me better than the 400...but I will see when I test out the 400.

I don't want to give it back tomorrow!!!

Riding dual-sport/super-moto helps improve street bike skills nicely.
Although not a SM, I've been enjoying the heck outta my DRZ400S.

Kickstands in the woods are a BAD idea... Makes me very nervous for you. I hope you zip tie it up or something when you're in the woods.
