And the guy on the left on the 800 has better taste in handguards.

There are many windshield options out there, I'm a similar height as you (5'7) and use the Triumph adjustable screen and it works fine for me with the seat in either position. I'm in the process of cutting the original one into a "flyscreen" for summer use.

Keep the DRZ if you want to do some more challenging d/s. I have a few bikes in my garage and if I had keep two, it would be the DRZ and my tiger roadie. Mine is 8 years old and worth much more than it's value.

I am also 5'8" and have the adjustable mechanism. When it's hot and windy, I lower the screen. When it's calm and cool, I raise it.

Maybe you found another reason to disable the ABS when going onto dirt.

Definitely a well thought out farkling. Does the larger rear sprocket affect the highway performance???

Anyone have the pin-out for the Alarm connector? What I'm looking for is a wire that will tell me the high-beam is on under the seat.
