i don't need to 17's to drag pegs, i can easily do that with 50/50 tires on with both feet planted firmly on the pegs. my problem is getting the high speed slides down. i keep on low siding, the cost of riding gear is going to quickly surpass the cost of wheels and tires if i keep on trying high speed slides. some times i can nail them but more often than not i low side... it's just too fine of a line with knobbies.

Glad you had a good time Josh! Having evil thoughts about putting the drz up 4 sale now and getting something a little more "track oriented." Damn you for putting those thoughts in my head. Know of anyone that wants a drz up there?

So I was just out driving today and dropped by Sunsports. There wasn't a single dualsport there- is that normal?

I put a Kenda 270 rear on the DRZ, and now have no problem on the street... I just picked a corner on my commute and worked it daily till I got it down then another corner, and another
The TMII rear was just like you said- Fine line

I was there a few weeks ago and it was pretty sparse.

Anthony mentioned he is thinking about selling his DRz, I think it's an 07. It's clean and low miles. Has a Yoshi exhaust of some sort, LED turn signals, newish tires and low Suzuki seat.... I don't know what he wants for it though

I think I'd only been there once before, but was surprised at how little they had...

Don't think I'll probably be buying another bike until Fall maybe - We just spent a crapload on a lot of new stuff we didn't need for the new house, so I'll probably wait a bit before spending a bunch more funds...
