Ride Safe and make sure you dial up the Scotts dampener in the sand washes. Let's start planning the Grand Canyon ride soon......
I have finally got my DRZ just where I want it with the engine mods, gearing, crash protection, tank, dash, exhaust (bought Yosh RS3 off Craigs list for $160 - full system) - I think I might have spent more on aftermarket stuff than I did for the bike
Your bike is looking good and is one of the nicer examples without going overboard.
I like your back yard. Mine borders the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia.
I get where you're coming from with University costs. I've only got one daughter and we don't have the high tuition fees and other direct costs from the University, but the total cost of a University education these days... sheez!
She has a passion for riding and that is a cost borne with a smile.
On the damper... I'd encourage proficiency in sand before dialling up the damper. While they can be used as an aid, they are more often used as a crutch.
