Those WR's are sweet bikes.
No, I meant the bike I was looking at was overpriced, not a CRF. It was a dealership bike, 2002 DRZ400S and they wanted $3,295 for it. I'm trying to work out a deal with a DR650 now

I'm going to be putting Dunlop 606's on mine which look like an aggressive knobbie tire, but has great street manners.
For the right bike, I'd consider lowering links but I'd like to avoid them if possible. I see lowering links as the same thing as a spacer lift for a truck (not quite the same but the same principle). They change how the shock sits but because you still have the same amount of travel, you can bottom out and make the tire contact the body before the shock bottoms out. I'd rather either get a bike that's set up for my height, or respring it for me with the correct weight springs and good oils. New springs can make the world of difference with bikes!
