My two cents. You need pretty long legs for a DRZ unless your a pretty accomplished rider. You could get a lowering link though. The bike does much better in highway but unless your used to a heavyish bike off road you may not like it. It's not a replacement for a TW in my opinion, it is however a very good bike. The two people I know that swapped TWs for DRZs were not happy with the trade. They lost more than they gained in comfortable fear free riding. It was the height and weight that made them uncomfortable on it. I ride a 701 husky most days and still love the TW for what it is. There simply is no replacement for a TW200..
