if i could have only one bike, this wouldn't be it. i love my dr200, but unless you are willing to travel slowly it's not the best bike. i have a 39 tooth sprocket to install to get the rpms down at highway speed, but i don't have any illusions of interstate blasting once it's on. and like viverrid says, if you're taller then getting up on it will be a problem. i'm 5'4" and it's almost a little short when i stand up on it (which isn't too often).
