I've worn the helmet maybe 10 times and it's already falling apart. Good thing they'll let you turn that crap in and exchange it no questions asked.

Well that sucks.

And my ride to fall ratio is much greater than yours, so it seems like mine would wear quicker haha.

What parts are giving you trouble?

The flip down sun visor broke on my first one but that may have been my fault. I got the replacement and now the screws are just falling out of the top sun visor (outside top of helmet). Im going to take them all off and loctite them.

Start with something small and work up to something. You can easily sell the smaller bike to move up.

My girl started dualsport riding in August. She is 5'-10" 135lbs, don't tell her I told you guys. She started with a KLR250 and we just stepped her up to a F650GS. She is not gonna ride advanced offroad so this was the perfect direction. I thought she would, but I was mistaken on her stepping up to more serious offroading.

Now when I say not serious offroading, I mean she is not going to do Shoe Creek in the mountains or jump her bike. She will do all the forest roads leading up to that. The only issue is running the highway with the 250, but why are we riding the interstate with a dualsport anyway. Anyway sorry for that rant.

If you want to get your girl out, let me know I will let you bring her over and ride the 250 with us for a day or so. Nicole loved starting on this bike and still wants it to ride in certain situations.

SW Center Stand, Cycra Handguards, MRA Windshield, Epic Panniers, Hyper Lites, Renthal Bars, Acewell Digital Speedo, Seat Concepts upgrade, Smash Plate, Pelican Top Box (maybe), EBC pads, FMF exhaust, thousands of miles left on tires, recent oil and filter change. To much more to mention but you get the concept. Right at 8800 miles. Pics to follow.....located in West Point, Virginia, 30 miles east of Richmond. Got it out there on CL for $4700 but I'll give an inmate discount!! PM for any added info....
I have been told to sell the Wee and buy this. No No No.

Congrats on the DRZ...you should lurk on or say something on the Richmond Chatter. A lot of those guys have the DRZ as a second bike & a couple have had to lower them to accommodate their short inseams...

S- you trying to start a run on the DR's? This bike is a nice one tho...very clean & I think I saw it do its only off-road ride. That's right I think it has only been off road once...is that right Buckrut?
