    Don't hate me. DR350

    I will most likely be buying a DR350 in the next week or so. I'm going to try and keep the TW for now, if I can.

    I had been looking for DR650 until I rode a 350. Why did Suzuki stop making this? My thinking was, 1200 Sporster, DR650 and TW would make a rounded stable but I don't do, bike camping, cross country rides, hell, I don't even have anybody to tag-a-long. The 350 will at least let me burn away 60mi. in 50 minutes instead of 70+ min., ducking LOG & GRAVEL trucks.

    Next question, if I sell my TW, can I still hang out here?

    Of course you can! You will however be required to replace the "o" in your current screen name with an "i".

    Sure you can hang out with us true believers. Just know you have to be humble lol. Have to admit, after having some adv riders stopping in from time to time I am considering a packmule with some highway oomph. Still, there is no way I will let my TW's go. They will always have a place here. Love those little underpowered steeds. Mostly it is the folks that I get to ride with.

    I have been on the lookout for a clean DR350SE (got to have that electric start ).

    I guess that Suzuki figured that the DRZ400 series was a suitable replacement.

    Im still kicking myself for getting rid of my 97 dr350. I had it all modded to fit me and everything. Great dependable bike.

    The 350 is a sweet bike and for me when I was looking at street legal dirt or dual-sport, one of the heavy contenders. Wasn't going any heavier or larger displacement than that (already done the KLR/DR650 thing... too heavy). Problem was the really nice 350's were going for almost vintage type of money. The others were too beat up.
