I loved my DRZ.  They are a fun bike, but the new ones should be updated.   this one looks well cared for. That would be a lot of fun for $2899.  LBTS GLWS.

If the DRZ was fuel injected, I'd own it in a heartbeat. CRF450L looks to be in my future though.

Only 25hp though... and dirt bike maintenance schedule.

False news. Some Euro dealer listed the CRF250L hp on the CRF450L. Honda says in the 40s, they won't list hp specs on a dirt bike. 

The DRZ is basically unchanged since early 2000s. The good news is OEM and aftermarket parts are easy to find. The bad news is its heavy and/or underpowered compared to the more premium dual sports. However it is inexpensive and easy to work on. 

Justin you should ride it. There are some great places to ride a dual sport near you. It alot of fun exploring the back roads in that area. That price is barely a down payment on a KTM or CRF450.

I’ve had 3 DRZ’s all sumo not DS all of you know that. Most posting here watched me grenade one of them on the Hocking ride. Grenaded another at Mid Ohio. Sold the 3rd.  Good times. 

So I know a bit about them. I wouldn’t get another one. Everyone says bullet proof, I say bullshit. My maintenance is always right on and I exploded 2 of 3. I guess if you grandma it then yea maybe. I rode mine like a sumo, did wheelies and track days. Stuff a SM should handle. 

I switched to the CRF. 

The DRZ pales in comparison. It’s substantially heavier. Considerably down on power. Completely out classed in suspension. Not nearly as durable and less aftermarket support. 

Just my 2 pennies do with it as you will but if you find somewhere that has both a DRZ and CRF and ride both back to back you’ll buy the CRF.

Every time I see a DRZ I think of you wheelieing (how the fuck is that even spelled??) yours to death on that hocking ride lol 😂... I'd never buy one after that, why the hell else would I ride a dirt bike on the street if I can't fuck around without worrying about it going oil starved and grenading... That's what happened right? Isn't the oil pickup in the front of the pan on those?

The same issue will present on the DS as well playing around off road climbing hills or wheelies. Even just hard acceleration. 

Several companies make dual pickups and extended pickups but why should you have to do that?

      Short version: Looking to see if someone might be interested in a quick purchase of my 2006 Daytona 675, maybe for a track bike.
      Sad story version: I did a stupid thing and had a low-speed lowside on my Daytona, which was the only thing I'd ever owned and managed to keep in pristine condition, so I'm a little heartbroken and a lot pissed at myself. The complicating factor is that I'm in the process of moving and I need to be gone in a week. So I'm going to either have to store the bike here and figure out how to fix the cosmetic damage later, but I also thought I'd put it up here in case someone wants it as is as a track bike, and then I won't have to move it. A sale would have to take place in the next week before I leave.
      Four of the six pieces of plastic got some rash, as well as the right side engine case. Naturally there's a gouge in the tank where it sticks out like a wing above the knee cutouts. I rode it home. The frame was untouched and the bike runs same as before. 
      The only part that would have to be replaced to ride it would be the brake pedal.
      Details on the bike:
      2006 Tornado Red Daytona 675 which I bought barely used in 2007. That means no ABS or TC, just a sweet-handling bike. Mechanically stock except I removed the valve in the exhaust system when it malfunctioned, as most of them eventually do. It's just there to pass the noise test with the EPA and does not affect performance. Currently has 22,697 miles so it would be due for a valve inspection at 24,000. HeliBars clip-ons currently on the bike. I have the stock clip-ons to go with it. Recall on the regulator/rectifier was done. Always Mobil MX-4T oil. I used this bike for back road rides and maybe 10 track days over the years. Asking $3,000. Call or text 614 239 8159.

      2013 Ducati Hyperstrada 821, ABS/TC/3 ride modes, approx 16K miles, factory luggage, center stand, Ducati tank bag. Includes Pitbull rear stand with 2 axle pins. New tires, belts done and many recent expensive new parts.  Yes, there's a story here....   In the interest of full disclosure, I bought this last spring from Pauly and have actually put fewer miles on it than it traveled in my trailer to/from Commonwealth Ducati in Louisville.  Took it for my first ride and BOOM....the ECU crapped out literally 2 miles from home. Turned out there was an open recall that neither Pauly nor the previous selling dealer had completed which fried the ECU and the TFT dash.   PLEASE NOTE!!!  I am not ascribing blame to Pauly, nor do I think he intentionally or knowingly sold a pig in a poke.  Sometimes, life hands out shit sandwiches when dabbling in used vehicles...especially those manufactured in a country with a tri-color flag.  He actually stepped up and offered to help cover some of the repair costs (I declined the offer) so....solid guy.   Commonwealth completed the recall which involved replacing all the coil packs and luckily for me, Ducati NA stepped up and comped the expensive parts to the tune of more than $3000. I paid another grand for new coil packs and sundry labor charges.  Bottom line, all is good with the bike (according to Commonwealth) but I have little love lost for this gorgeous lady....she has to go. If you think you're emotionally strong enough to suffer the slings and arrows of tumultuous love and favor all things Italian, this deal is calling your name.   KBB Trade-in/Retail: $4550/$6600 NADA Retail Low/High: $5025/$6610   Honest Review: https://www.rideapart.com/reviews/255014/rideapart-review-2013-ducati-hyperstrada/

      Anyone interested in a classic that started the whole utv market?
      Its about as OEM as you’ll find. The only things not original 1985 on it are the items I just changed to bring her out of storage. Battery, Spark plug, Air filter, Fuel lines and carb rebuild. 
      Yes those are the original 1985 tires even. It’s been in my dads garage for the last 15 years. I bought it for him about 16 years ago. 2nd owner. Barely ridden.
