On a random note, anyone up for grabbing dinner & a beer in Raleigh tonight? It's too nice out to pass up.

Subscribing. I keep missing out on these and meeting like minded individuals.

Y'all continue with your regularly scheduled planing while I sort things out.

Buying Another Bike

I'm seriously thinking about picking up this DR-Z400S. I've never had one, but I'd like to do the TAT next summer and my 440# F650GS is more bike than I want to muscle that ride. I would really appreciate any advice you could give me on this bike:

Spend the extra coin and buy Luni's 400. In better shape and ready for the TAT.

And it's running and closer.
You are just hoping he is correct thats it won't start because of a carb issue. And the cluster is a sealed unit. And it "got wet"??? I'm sure that isn't a cheap part.
It would have to be way cheaper than$2000 for me to touch it.


Look up luni like donkeys said.

I couldn't find a listing for it, so I dropped Luni a line asking about the bike.

He pulled the listing and figured he might hang on to it for a few more months until he moved. He said it is still for sale through word of mouth though.
