Plus one on the Rad Guards and Case guards. Before I had my CRC case covers I punched a hole in the soft Magnesium case on my DRZ400E, pictured below. I don't think the S model has Mag cases, probably Alu. Better for a travel bike.
I sold my '01 DRZ400E in 2004, after 3 years of ownership. I don't believe the "E" model was ever sold in the UK, but not sure. Very different bike and way better off road than the S. But lack of strong sub frame, small headlight and low Alt. output make it not an ideal RTW travel bike.
I also twisted a radiator on my bike ... so Rad guards a good idea. I fell going 20 MPH of soft dirt ... Rad did not leak but was twisted, plastic cracked. Myler's in Utah fixed it like new for $30. Rad guards could save the day.
