Good choice! I had a DRZ-400E in Mexico for about 3.5 years until I sold it a few weeks ago (shown in post 17497 and starring in Tricepilots latest RR). It was very reliable and fun to ride. For off-road riding there was no compromise at all. It could go anywhere and keep up with any bike out there. Mine was geared up a little and could jump on the highway and keep up with traffic all day long. Not just keep up, it passed everything in sight on curvy mountain roads. No rear sub-frame = big backpack.
