Not mine, clean looking. Drive past it going to and from work. Will try and put a photo from my ipod if I can ever figure that out.
Not mine either.
2003 DR 650
Rochester NY. No affiliation.
This one even has a title:
Thats a sweet bike for very little money, it's a good thing I don't have room for another bike or I'd be planning a trip to maine!
I got a chuckle, maybe this has already been posted, and sounds like it is likely another inmate, but still a decent ad:
Think you're going to ride the TransLab or Trans Taiga but don't have the right bike for the job? Here it is:
2011 DRZ400S. All you need is a high viz twatsuit and a fistful of cash to make your Walter Mitty dreams come true.
I bought the bike this Spring new. It currently has 2500 miles on it but I commute to work sometimes. There is a loan on the bike. It is in excellent mechaincal condition and just got the third oil change and the valves checked. They were perfect. The chain is lubed and adjusted.
Here is what it has:
-Baja Designs 100 watt racelight. Low is off and high beam is on. The beam is easily adjusted with a knob on top of the light frame. The amber lens is a cover that can be removed in 2 minutes.
-Clarke 3.9 gallon tank...cuz no self respecting adventure rider would own a bike with less than a 200 mile range(yes, I am rolling my eyes as I type this)
-Tusk aluminum anodized gas cap with a little dink-thingy vent on top.
-Seat Concepts custom Alacantra seat. Turned the stocker from a medeivel torture device to something you can actually sit on through a full tank of gas.
-Pro Taper ATV bars with 1.5 inch risers. I have the cross bar and pad but took them off.
-Custom, removable sex machine windshield used to advertise moustache rides. Purpose built to piss off the aforementioned high viz twatsuit wearing riders who take themselves too seriously. It's actually just a cut down Slipstreamer with a sharpie drawing. The windshield is quick release.
-Tusk D-Flex handguards.
-CFC case savers
-Tonnes Fabricating skidplate. This is primarily used for crushing the souls of proletariats.
-Rugged Rider rear rack. I know it sounds like a gay porn film...but the woman who owns the company is super nice and the rack is solid.
-Ebay special side racks that are perfect for mounting Pelican boxes or a Great Loop bag(as well as looking rad).
-New DOT approved Dunlop D606 knobbies for that extra special cool factor. Nevermind the fact they're terrifying in the rain...imagine how cool you'll look!
I am sure there is more that I've forgotten but the thought of all the money I've dumped into the bike depresses me. It's about $1500 in accessories. All the stock parts, including the Deathwing tires, come with the bike.
Now for the stupid stuff and answers to likely questions I expect to receive on the bike.....
Has it been down? You're an idiot. Of course it has. It's got a 37 inch seat height and I suck off road. Nothing is bent, dented or broken. It has superficial scratches that can be seen in the photos.
Will this keep up with my friend's KTM? You're still an idiot. Of course not. However, the DRZ will still be running like a watch when the KTM has been rebuilt 17 times.
I live in Nigeria, will you accept a bank transfer and can I get your checking account number? Was I dumb enough to buy a KTM? No, that means I'm not dumb enough to give anyone my checking acct number either. Go pound sand.
I am 5 feet tall. Will this be a good bike for me? Yes, but only if you bring cash. I will even help lift the bike off you when it falls on top of you in my driveway. I'm sure it'll be easy to get it home with a broken pelvis.
