05 drz 400 sm

Wow, great variety of bikes listed there....

One of my freinds rode an 05 drz 400sm. He always scooted around on it easily and just rode the snot out of it. It looked super fun and honestly bad ass!! So one day on a trip I asked if we could switch bikes for a little while. We did and i was quite excited to try it out. After around 30 minutes of backroad twistys and in town riding I finally pulled over and asked to switch back. The bike sat up higher than I thought and leaning it over through the corners felt strange. The acceleration was weak and the bike overall had no pep. Just not the same image I had in my mind when I see him buzzing around town.

He was riding my 93 Yamaha XJ600 Seca II and told me it was actually a joy to ride it around. He reluctantly switched back to his bike lol... He also swapped with a different person on the ride to ride his Souped up R1. My friend with the SM sold it not long after.
