    2cents One tough little bike.

    If you are looking for a tough dirt orented dual sport, consider the DR-Z. I am more impressed the more I ride mine and hear about them the more impressed I am. I have heard of them being dropped off vehicls going down the Freeway and being rideable. Last summer I broke a radiater and rode mine back to camp running out of water on the way. No problem. Today I ran accross a thread on advrider whare a guy didn't realize he lost all his water and rode it over 50 miles with no engine damage.

    If you want a dirt orented dual sport think about the DR-Z. There may be others with more power etc etc, but no other is as tough as these things IMHO.
    It's the journey, not the destination.

    My DRZ has also shown toughness. +1

    and it looks cool in neat places.

    Yep. That's going to be the next bike in my garage, next to my VStrom 650. I was all set to buy one from a co-worker a few weeks ago, then I found out was getting laid off at the end of September. I'll resume my search when I line up my next job.
