I know this has been discussed but I want to try and request responses on a particular aspect of this bike choice. I'm about 5'10 / 200lbs. I've been reading through the DRZ400 threads ritually, and had my heart set on this bike. I'm just looking for one used now. My intention is NOT to ride on the highway, nor is it to do a lot of road riding. I'll be trailering this bike and driving it to wherever I'm riding (I live in Staten Island, NYC). The riding I'm looking for is as much trail and dirt and I can get to, but since that is lessening every year in availability I know there will be some roads to and twisties to hit. That's fine, but I want to void road with multiple lanes and large trucks. Partly this is because I'm a dad and I want to be sure I don't offer myself up to circumstances that could be overly dangerous for me, and in addition to this (and you may know him or know of this story) but my cousin was recently killed in California in a highway accident. He clipped his footpeg while lane splitting and was thrown under the wheels of a large auto carrier. My wife is concerned about my highway, main road riding and this is making me possibly second guess my DRZ decision. So here's my question, would a KLX250 or a WR250R be a better overall trail dirt ride over the DRZ? I'm just in love with the reliability and simplicity of the DRZ, but if I'm not going to be needing it for a lot of ropad riding, would the KLX250 or WR250R be a better bike for me? They're lighter, easier to pick up and not necessarily as road worthy... Or, is my weight going to make that KLX250 a little boring and sluggish in hills and mud? The WR sounds like an amazing ride but I'm concerned with trail-maintaining a fuel injected bike. Is this an issue I shouldn't be concerned with? Help me with some insight on a bike that will be safe to ride and not required for highway and freeway use. I know the DRZ doesn't have a 6th gear but it's still a bike people choose because of it's road worthiness. I'm starting to wonder whether my sights need to be pulled back and possibly opened up to reconsider the KLX or WR. Opinions? People who've made the same decisions before?
