OZ musta changed in the last 20yrs.... my buddy said when he was there, all the girls liked the American guys cuz the Aussie guys were jerks. Either that or it was just BS from the uniform chasing skanks dockside

Don't worry I wasn't having a go, more having a chuckle at your poor attempt at humour in light of earlier comments on Aussie humour.

Well I told you I got my sense of humour from the relly's in Sidney

+1 on the sweet cheeks. I stuffed a piece of Thermarest Ridgerest inside the "map" pocket and that helped too.

I've done multiple 250+ mile days with this setup Khmers the stock seat with the only complaint being the usual problem of churning out highway miles on these bikes.

I went with seat concepts 1" lower and wider seat with gripper. Excellent seat and actually enjoyed learning how to redo a seat cover.

Anyone out there with reviews?
I've tired three aftermarket seats and the Stearns ATV cover and I like the ATV cover, by far, the best. (I think this Coleman is the same as what used to be sold as Stearns.) It's not perfect as the seat is still too narrow, but it is pretty darn good. And all the aftermarket seats I tried were expensive and fit poorly.

For $20, I'd certainly give it a try.

The headlight is a Trailtech X2 unit (I have the HID version.)

From a distance, I'd guess the tyres are Dunlop D606..... But I'm often wrong.

I think you are referring to the stuff that sits down below the petcock. Yes, it's silly. The only way to really get to that would be to bounce around a bunch, or stand the bike up on end.
FYI for any one else:
Flasher
This is what I got, LED's Flash at normal rate.

I used one of these. Unpin the DRZ harness, unpin this plug, then plug them together.

Hi all! Sorry for my spanglish.
Here are some pics from my DRZ-E. Is my second DRZ. The first was a second hand bike but I fell in love with it: strong, reliable, versatile… I use it in both enduro and adventure trips (Morocco, Portugal…). So, when a year ago I found a new one in a Suzuki dealer (probably the last new DRZ in Spain) I was for it.
I have also a Yamaha Super Ténéré 1200 so with this two bikes I have all the off road possibilities. I know: I’m lucky guy!!

This is the enduro version



And in a couple of hours work it can be transformed in an adventure bike: bigger tank, more confortable seat, auxiliary lights, the DRZ-S transmission, luggage rack…

That IS a nicely set up E model,Ive got one in the flea market for sale with much the same setup and very fresh.
Much time and money invested in it.

Wunderlich sell them for the GSA. I share it with the two bikes. The system is very simple and effective, some plastic pieces attached to the bike "clips" into the ortlieb. I'm using it to carry the spare tubs and tools for punctures
Hope you can see it in the pic
