G450x?

So since I keep lusting for a G450X should I just quit spending money on the DRZ (sell it) and buy a 450 or stick with the DRZ which is highly supported by the aftermarket?

What might your DRZ be listed for ?
Not entirely serious but seriously curious!

Bruce,

I've seen that build. I like the Acerbis and the price is certainly right. I need to fab up some racks and a tank mount.

Edit: baby's been sick since Tuesday. As long as she's relatively okay, I should be at the cookoff tomorrow.

I do like that one but there was something about the guys ad which turned me off as I recall. The picture I posted is of one out of Arkansas which I like the list of farkles and mods which have been done to it.

Don't know at this time, but I do know I have done my typical thing which is fix, repair, and upgrade every bike I buy and then sell it and lose my ass. I will keep you in the loop if I decide to make a change. The way the job is right now I may just have to stay with what I have and play it safe.

I spent allot of money on my drz. Tank, FCR, full yoshimura exhaust, springs, all the protection stuff, sm wheels etc.

At the end of the day it was a waste of money, it's just good enough to make you keep spending more money on it to make it better.

Its just to heavy to be good.

I got the 450 and the 200 and immediately had more confidence and a desire to play. I was trying to ride up things and at a pace I'd have never considered before.

Broke off from Blaster and J4S ride about 30 mins ago. They are heading to Mortons Chili cook off. I am guessing they will arrive somewhere around 1230ish. I think the raffle is 1330.

On the other note, came home for an appointment....but instead have a vmail message requesting (another) reschedule...sigh.

Dan....sorry about the other day when I called, I actually didn't realize it was you until after I hung up.

Dan said that there will be room in the first aid class for about 100 people since they moved to a bigger room, so tell your friends.
No problem!
