    Close, I bought that bike, and got her home. Cleaned up and in the garage, sans rack. She is a completely bone stock 2006 DR-Z400SM. Oh my God, I have so much to do. Here is the starting line......





    Even has all the warning stickers!!!!



    Goodness, I got it bad, I need a FCR39MX, an exhaust, cams and a base gasket to start. Then Springs and braided brake line, then some bling and tires and such. Should be respectable in a month or two. Got to get the big gas tank as well.

    Oh dear Admit it, you got a DRZ just 'cause they need so much modding. The RC8R didn't have enough that needed fixed and you'd just finished off the last of the shiny bits from the hard parts catalog

    That's one heck of a rear rack too.

    Josh you nailed it, but also the DR-Z will keep me under 100 mph blowing down back roads. Hee Hee. I just ordered the same springs I put on my old one. Up next, cams, carb and exhaust.

    That rack is beautiful. Plus you can take it on and off in a minute or so. I used it to lift the bike around. But I may give it to Zelig if he is interested.
