    Nice pics :freaky I am looking at buying a DRZ and this seemed like a good place to get info, how are they on the road for touring ? How do they compare to KLR ? Any issues to look out for ? couldn't find much info anywhere else on here.
    Thanks

    This is a great thread. The KLX400 (green DRZ) is my favorite bike. This is a 5 shot panorama near Engineer Pass Ouray, Colorado.

    please tell me where this "road" is located. I've ridden around Ouray,CO including Engineer Pass, but I've never seen that path.

    Hey robklx400, these images were taken just a few yards from the wooden sign marking the top of Engineer Pass. The sign is actually off to the right of the photo. The "road" that looks like it is going into the photo is actually an observation point and dead ends. The trail actually continues on behind where I took the images.

    You've ridden Engineer Pass, so you've been here. I think it's the shots stitched together to make the panorama that causes some distortion.

    The area between Ouray and Silverton is an adventure rider's dream as so many folks here know. I'm going to try and head back out there this summer.

    Take care.
