Hola Medel,

Com esta!

My DRZ400E is a compromise. It is cheap to buy in Australia $7400 AU, but needs about $3000 spent on improvements in suspension, steering damper and a wide ratio gear box. I am about to get a ACT gear set fitted to make first gear low and increase the gap between the other 4 gears by about 6%. This will avoid the need to change sprockets to suit the terrain.

I am an ex-enduro rider who rode 250 cc machines like this;



So the thought of riding a big twin adventure bike is absurd. I want to be able to pick the bike up after a fall by myself.

I would love to visit your country and ride the back country.
One of my first bikes was a Montesa. It was pretty!

This is my first ride report. I duplicated some text and images, but I am thinking that is not a big issue. I held my mobile phone/cell phone sideways a lot, but I don't know how to rotate the images. It was sunny and I struggled to see what I was photgraphing in the view finder.
