    I love my drz, dare I say it's my favourite of all the bikes I've owned but I wouldn't have it as a main bike. It would be perfect for short commutes and Sunday blasts. With all the essential mods it will keep up with sports bikes on the Twisties.

    Forget it for long hauls though, far too uncomfortable and vibey.

    I can honestly see me keeping this bike forever it's just so much fun to ride. I'd only replace it with a KTM 690sm or 701

    I don't mean a walk in a park, in Hard Enduro or even MX races its noticeable.

    At what speeds does it wheelie and what gear are you using?

    It will power wheelie in first and second, clutch up above that.

    Don't get me wrong it's tame as supermoto's go but its still a lot of fun and much more reliable.
