whent for the first break in ride today out the back of landsborough qld.
was a bit wet and muddy , but i must say i am 110% happy with the new 2010 drz 400e , loved it , it has enough power all through the gear range and pulls up anything with ease.
im hooked on the new bike compared to my old yz125,
a mate of mine was with me on a 2005 gasgas 450 and even he said the drz was pretty impresive.
the only falt i have with it is,,,, the front tyre is POO,, even playing with the tyre presures didnt help and the rear suspention seems a little soft, so they are two thing that will be changed for the next ride in two weeks from today,, i will post some pics as we will be going for a two day ride from the sunny coast to bundy ( the hard way ).
ride safe my fellow drz-ers unless you get an itch not to.
oh and by the way,,,,, now i have about 4 hours of bike cleaning ahead of me.

this is DRZTROY signing off...............................

Glad your having some fun on your new DRZ. I just got mine 2 weeks ago but have been in the process of moving house so its sitting in the garage with only 200k,s on the clock. Still got a lot of miles to do before its run in. :(

Nothing at all. Graphics would be it. They should go back to a black seat next year on the yellow ones if the RMZ's are anything to go by

Picked up my 2010 DRZe last week and rode it in the mud of Gembrook Vic. Certainly agree, they are a great bike. I had a decent set of Bridgestone knobbies fitted before taking deleivery and found that it handles well. Only complaint is how long they take to 'run in' (got to be a good thing in the long run) and ultra low gearing that's great for tight bush tracks and big hills, but has it reving pretty hard at only 80 km/h in the open. Looking into a 15t front sproket for slightly lower rev's at speed without sacraficing it's good low end punch. Overall, top bike and great value. Mick
