They are all good as a first DS bike or first bike in general. I'd go for the DR350, more power but still friendly, good 6 speed gearbox.

Or the Super Sherpa (first link) for someone who's a little shorter. And that's a decent price for an SS, assuming it's in good shape.

I agree - where was the SS when I was looking a few months back. It is newer than the DR350 and is electric start. I had a DR350SE as well and it was a great bike, just too tall for my wife.

Smokin' good deal on a street legal KLX 400SR (DR-Z 400S). $1600 - make offers!

I'd buy it tomorrow if I weren't south for the winter

I wonder what's wrong with it. I posted the same bike about 2 months ago at the same price.

not saying that is not a great deal. maybe the advertised pack is too small for you though. here is the geigerrig site.
for those that don't know the geiger folks have been working with inmates and offering up our own adv discount, which i believe is ongoing, for over a year now. here is link in vendors to a thread that shows there outstanding customer service, gives you details about their products and the adv discount(post 15) among other things.

no affiliation. just been following that thread and over the packs for a while now and thought i would share the knowledge.

Stop drooling and get one. I picked up the Rig 500 and an additional 3L bladder to go in it. I use the 2L bladder from the 500 as a replacement in one of my older hydration back packs. Best hydration bladder I've ever used. Nice to have 3L on the longer trips.
