I had a Suzuki DRZ400SM for years and loved it, I also had a Yamaha R1 at the same time and agreed they both had their purpose. When I road with some road racing friends on the right Twisties on that DR I could cut to the inside and zip right around them and hold them at bay in the tight stuff but once we hit a straight piece of road I wish I had the R1, it was like by by. Years ago at one time I had 7 bikes but getting married a house and a child and this 2A habit I have noneI'm a dual sport kinda guy myself.
Not enough straight lines for supper bikes IMO.
Plus there's quite a few mountains and trails that cruisers and crotch rockets, just, can't, go..
