Unfortunately it proves it's more about the bling than going faster

Agree totally with the sentiments expressed in the article.

Buy a 650 for what it is. Don't try and spend money on it to try and turn it into something it will never be.
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Anyone with a DR will kill for a decent seat like the one on this bike.

I like the new plastics and the slimmer look as it is something that I am after as well.

The more you enjoy the ride, the less the seat bothers you!

Keep off the boring black stuff!

Looks like a RMZ front fender, good mod for the DRZ as well. Just check when you buy plastics as Suzuki changed the yellow somewhere in early 2000's from a "mustard" colour to the bright yellow we see on tha later models.
