I am bringing my bike to work but I have a feeling I won't be able to leave until after lunchtime. Weather is looking good though so I hope to join the 2nd half of the ride.

The resale value on Hondas can be quite high compared to the other 3 jappers.

Has anyone mentioned the DRZ400E? Better bike IMO but more complex and may cost an extra few hundred dollars.

How much pavement? I am a fan of the Dunlop D606. It is a DOT knobby that wears like iron on dirt, and can handle some pavement. If you do not need as aggressive tread, look at the Kenda 270.

No one here can tell you for sure. A dyno run is needed. 40HP is possible from that motor, it already made 30-32 stock. However, to get to 40 it would be a very high state of tune.
