See the family resemblance?
Now the DRZ will get stripped back down for more of a short rally/open woods bike. It will never be light and agile but it'll damn sure eat up anything more than tight single track.
I'm thinking lose the bags, regear down to 14/44 or 14/47, and go from there.
You are clearly a DRZ hater.
