Ok Thanks. I havent seen much on this bike and was curious. My fiance is wanting to ride. So I will be looking for a bike (TTR250,XR250 or DR250) soon. Havent seen much on the DR in print or the web. Do you think your wife will let you take it for a day and thrash it around for the good of us DRN members? or is she protective of it, not allowing you near it. Maybe she could give us a ride report.
