Trice. Good write-up on the bike. You may recall we had a thread some time ago about bike size and I raved about the 250cc I ride, a low-tech Honda street bike with dual-purpose tires. I think a couple of guys laughed at me
I'm just shy of 5'8" and also over 50. Fitness guy too, but not CrossFit. No!
. For my rides to Mexico in order for me to do mostly street but get out to locations on dirt roads (like the roads around Parras, etc.) you can see how my selection of bike was shaped. If I was taller, I would have selected just like you did, a DRZ 400 kitted out with adventure farkles.
