You all told my story... haha. I had just posted on another forum that I want to fly from Dulles Airport (Wash DC - near home) to either CA, AZ, or UT and purchase a new or nice used DRZ400 to get plated and stickered, and travel the west for a couple weeks. Then find a self store and fly myself back home. I really LOVE riding out west but cannot miss too much work at a time. This seems like a viable option. Would love to hear more stories and tips from all the folks here that have done it. I'm really sorry to hear but would like to know more from the fella that had some stuff stolen in Salt Lake City... just as a heads up to what was perpetrated.
