Some people laugh when they hear I ride a DRZ...

But then they've never ridden one themselves... so we have to forgive them for their ignorance!  :mwink:

I ride for transport.. I ride for sport.. Ag wat.. I ride just coz I can!

Some really nice pics..

Love the comments about guys laughing about DRZ400 riders.. I also love watching the guys huffing and puffing with their fat ladies when they lose balance.. Ha ha ha.... I think if you want to go faster than a DRZ can go offroad, then you may as well use SAA and get it over with.

Mine isn't bling but it works..

Try and run start a DRZ, you'll be huffing and puffing in no time bru, ask me, I've tried it only to find out the fuse at the battery was fried!! ::)

 Heh heh, yeah, a kickstart is a bonus.. Although, having said that, the huffing and puffing would have been there if it had a kickstart anyway, especially with the problem with the fuse.. There is however a trick to run starting any non kickstart bike, though the bigger the machine, the bigger the physical challenge.. The big DS bikes, need a second person as you can't do both push and start..
My DRZ has a filthy habit of running it's battery dead after a few days in the garage. Has a power drain somewhere, batt is new. I have to disconnect it to keep it charged if I am not going to use it for longer than three days. When it catches me, it takes a few seconds and it's running.. Though because the charging system doesn't quite get the battery up quickly, properly, I prefer to give it an hour charge before I use it..

are you using the kill switch to turn off the bike during rides? My battery started to fail on rides when i used the kill switch too much when we stopped, and someone saw the problem i was having and told me to use the KEY to turn off the bike, since then, i have never had a battery problem.

As jy die kill switch slaat, bly al die lektrieks nog aan ??? Obviously gaan jou battery afk@k ::) Ek haat die kill switch, gebruik hom net as ek neer foeter en die bike gou moet afsit, dis waarvoor hy daar is, mynsinsiens...
