I don't think it would be that hard to come up with something that's under 375 pounds, has 60 hp, and a 6th gear. Would be funnier to pitch something like that into the weeds than it would a $10K adv bike.

Don't tell anyone though, might drive the price up on POS ninja's.
If it is a POS then why you using it !?

Low cost.

By POS I mean nearly killed. My wife had one a while back and I put a bunch of miles on it. They are really decent bikes. I think it would be fun to have one with knobbies on it.

Something like that but with a more conventional shock location and spoked wheels.

sea fog in river condenses on 395 bridge....already salted...steady on the throttle, no sudden moves get in most traveled lane tire tracks, stay out of middle of lane....commuter season comes to a close....
18 deg and the heated gear was doing fine...G3 gloves on max and jacket control tuned to 13 on the voltmeter.....

I was wondering if anyone was still around, or travelling for T-day. Looks like Friday will be a good day to get out for a ride.

Hey IC, how are you liking the DRZ? How's it compare to the KLX?

Dead short? 'cause if your jacket is 150W or thereabouts, the resistance will only be around 1 Ohm if it's working correctly.
