Shit, that's some setup you've got there - it's gonna FLY..... :biggrin:

It does :) scary. 3rd feels like 2nd used to. 2nd is just insane. lots fun in the sand.

Still haven't dyno'd. will do soon.
I crash test all of my safety gear. Do you?

What gearing you running?
There is nothing you can do about the past and you can't predict the future...all you have is the now...live it to the fullest.

HAHAHA. sorry for the delayed response. been busy being a Dad. so little time to ride :(

I am running 14 - 44.

I will probably go even longer though, like a  15 - 45 or something next.

This addictive forum is an occupational hazard for him now. 

How's the DRZ going, and what about some exercise on Sunday???

I now have a job that means I cannot check the internet or my phone during the day.

It's pretty weird. But my bike will be all sorted and I will be riding again in the next week or so :)

Aghh... just a note of thanks... and a little feedback.

Milddog, you may remember selling me a radiator fan...
Just wanted to say Thanks again. Fitted beautifully to my bike - on the LH radiator. Works a dream, especially when tackling some of my fav rides, such as the hill I wanted to conquer (see pic).
 :laughing4:

The ol' DRZ is just so very versatile!
 ;D
I ride for transport.. I ride for sport.. Ag wat.. I ride just coz I can!

Previous rides: Yamaha DT250; Kawasaki Z750L1; Yamaha XS400 Special (excluding my "Fifty" & One-two-five Yammie)

Very happy to hear you are getting good use out of the fan :)

My bike is up and running. Now to find time between work and parenting to ride...  :'(

Took it for a burn last night. Bishopscourt to Constantia Nek and back. Gave my cousin on his GSXR 400 a good run through the corners. Very fun. Very silly. Full knobs, riding like a motard.

OK, I read through the whole thread now. Where are some recent pics of your DRZ? I'm looking at buying one again.
Don't dress for the ride,........dress for the fall!
