Hi All, I'm looking at getting my first road registered bike, the trick is I'm looking for something with versatility. At the moment I'm looking hard at WR450F or a DRZ-400E/S/SM. The purpose of the bike is for short adventure rides (maximum six days, most would be 3 or so), which will entail some freeway getting there (a few hours at 100-120kph), but as much offroad as possible. I realise either of these bikes is a big compromise on comfort, cargo capacity and mileage, but for me I feel it will be worthwhile for the added offroad ability and reduced weight. My main concern at the moment is: 1. lack of a substantial rear subframe. 2. Servicing intervals. I won't be flogging the bike on my weekends away or taking massive loads with me (I plan to get a larger, plumper adventure bike in the near future for that purpose) but I'm concerned about small oil capacity and long highway rides buggering the engine, or overloading a bike with no real support at the back. Can you help me with what options would exist for alleviating these problems on the WR450F or DRZ 400's? I'm thinking here about: 1. Gearing changes 2. Oil system improvements (larger aftermarket sumps, oil coolers etc). 3. Cargo carrying options or rear subframe reinforcement. At the moment I can get the following for similar money ($5k to $5k): 1. 06 WR450F with 20,000km on it and a supermoto conversion $5,000. 2. 09/10 DRZ-400E with no SM conversion, but only 300km's to 1,500km's on it; or 3. 08 DRZ-400SM with ~10,000km on it and a few basic mods. Any thoughts on where the money might be best spent?
