Hey Toad - would you mind telling me more about your DR? I read your excellent "Expedition Michigan" ride report and am very interested in your bike. I've got a 1200GS and a Yamaha TW200 and think I need something in between for a ride through the UP next summer. I may even sell the TW and buy a used DR. I'm curious about your thoughts on the DR350 vs. DRZ400. Where did you get your rear rack and bigger tank???
I've owned the DRZ about a year and a half and cant say anyting but good things about it.

It began life as an S model, I have since added:

Sidecase protectors
Larger tank (IMS 4.0 gallon)
MSR radiator guards
Tusk D Flex hand guards
Moose Expedition rack
Heated grips
LED aux lights up front (too see and be seen)
Seat Concepts seat (went thru about 4 others)

I think im done now

We've done quite a bit riding in the LP as well as Tennessee mountains.

Planning on a big cross country dirt trek summer 2013 on her.

Feel free to PM anytime if you want to come check it out, sit, ride, etc.

now.. back to the tagging
