I bought a drz 2 years ago and love it. It was great for both worlds, i fitted GS500 wheels to it and started racing SM last year, and of course commmuted/ trail road with pirelli's. Now though, i am comptemplating selling it and buying a XR650L/R i want to be able to ride it on the road with more confidence (HP). What are the differences between the L/R and is the R plate-able (i live in N.Y. so its a little hard). Hopefully in the future i can buy a mx and convert it to supermoto too, and actually be somewhat competetive. I will have alot more questions, but this looks like a good start. The 55hp Sounds like a lot of fun with Supermoto wheels on the street!
