Adding a windshield was one of the best upgrades I made. It not only increased my top speed but also my mileage increased due to improved aerodynamics. I've had no issues with the windshield riding...

What to add

How about a Cycleracks rear rack? It's made right there in Boise. The Spitfire S-06 windshield was a great upgrade too.

DR200 vs XT225

Having owned both I can give you my perspective on both bikes. I put 14,000 mechanical trouble free miles on my XT225 but the XT does have it issues. #1 in my book is the terrible hub and spoke set...

Yes, I have the S-06 and it's a great upgrade. If you're over 5'10" you might want to put on a set of handlebar risers also to raise the height a little more. I'm 5'11" and with the bars at the...

More padded seat

This might work for you. I've been wanting to do it just for some more padding to reduce the monkey butt factor!

Yeah, I agree it wasn't that fair of a comparison. Having owned a XT225 previously I like the DR200 better. In stock form the DR is pretty anemic. Letting the engine breathe and enriching the fuel...

2013 dr200

I think the price is a little steep. I think that if you could get one for no more than MSRP total you'd be doing ok.

Here is a brand new one semi close to me:

I really like it, but it is a little spendy. It's worth it though because that's one less thing to worry about.

Comparing the DR200 vs XT225

DR200:

Bigger fuel tank (almost 1 gallon bigger than the XT)
Better chain (520 vs XT's wimpy 428)
Heavier...
