Default My new toy

Well.............I p*ssed off the Lady friend and purchased a new toy ! A 2006 Suzuki DRZ 400 !



A buddy of mine bought this new last year. He tricked it out for more serious off-road and rode it 300 miles. He is selling it to me for $ 2K.
He just purchased a KTM.

As they always say..........it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Ain't that the truth for most folks! I on the other hand do not need to stoop to those levels, I have the secret combination to the Misses little brain waves.


Congrats on the great deal!

Why did that tick her off? You pay for it with her credit card or somethin'?

Just another hobby that will give her less quality time.

I forgot to mention, the bike only has 300 miles !

The seller is a very close friend. Here is another one of his toys.

Yes !

It currently has full knobbies, no mirrors, different tail light, shorter gearing.

I'll only ride it 10% road, 90% off-road.

I wouldn't have bought it but my boat is slipped 3 hours from my home and I needed another toy.

For the price I couldn't turn it down !

2k for purchase, medical bills PRICELESS.

Things happen real quick when you are riding off road.

Yes !


How is it street legal? I don't see any mirrors or a tag. Plus, that prop would seriously pizz off pedestrians. Not to mention the mufflers.

Seriously, nice scoot!
