Been lurking around this thread and the minimalist thread for a while trying to make up my mind wich bike to get. Finally decided on the DR200 and couldnt be happier. I'm 44 yrs old and had never rode a motorcycle before. I got stubby leggs with a 30 inch inseem so the DR seems to fit me well. My main purpose for getting the bike is exploreing forest service roads, 4X4 trails and so on. I love my old GMC 4X4 but at 10mpg it's just to expensive to spend the weekend prowling around the mountains like I used to. I have had a blast on this little bike. Just got it last weekend and have put about 250 miles on. I dont know if there could be a better bike for someone to learn on.
Happy Trails to everyone
