Hey fellas(& ladies too) I am considering buying a new DRZ400S for use both to and from work and as a play bike. My question is has anyone doen this or know someone who does? I'm not planning on any racing or heavy stuff, just fireroads and trails. (besides I have a KX250 for the good stuff) Any opinions are wellcome, Thanx.

What's that commute to work on a DRZ-S? I have but not regularly. The bike is very happy on the road but a little skittish on the highway.

Ride the DRZ-S on the trail? Yeah it takes to the trail but flounders when it gets very technical. With fluids it is well over 300 lbs and it lacks the engine response and the better suspension of the dirt models. Most would agree that if your state is friendly to turning a trail bike into a dual-sport that it makes for a better ride on the trail. However, the dirt models will have a hard time gaining the nice manners of the dual-sport while on the road.
