I've recently purchased a 2008 DR200 with 1700 miles. It is my first motorcycle. I trolled this thread for a while then made the leap. I now have 992 miles of road experience. Thanks to this thread I've made a few simple mods to my bike to make her look great (to Me). I'm apparently one of the brave souls willing to push the speedometer to the limit on the highway. Every time I find anything off road I attempt it. So far so good. Thinking about performance mods next. Well I just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks for all the good info. Here are some before and after pics BEFORE http://i41.tinypic.com/2q0raz5.jpg AFTER Added new Acerbis Supermoto Fender, Fly Handlebars, Mini Stalk rear lights, Pro-taper grips, and added some stickers. http://i39.tinypic.com/5vdqbm.jpg What do you think?
