    I picked up a 2007 DRZ from a buddy, He gave me a deal that is truly unheard of. I will keep track of my upgrades in this thread. I know a lot of Tacoma guys are also bike fans.


    How it looks as of 9/3/19

    This was the weekend I went to NC to pick up the bike. My buddy drove over from Va, so I rented a cabin for the weekend. I think I may need some Dakar springs now :rofl:

    I've read up on all the fixes/upgrades for the DRZ. I will address those in steps.

    This was my first chance to get out and take it for a little spin. Found a pretty cool old iron bridge.

    I told my buddy @Toyotacrawler about the bridge and he let me ride out there with him and he got some great pics for me.

    I got the windscreen and handguards on(didn't hook up the turn signals). Also got the windscreen adjusted more upright after a quick ride.

    Got the tail light in the mail today. Surprisingly, the turn signals fit. I was expecting to have some troubles.

    My dash should be here this week, I'm just waiting for the battery. I figure I'll try to get it all added in one go.

    Ordered a set of 1 1/8 bars. Now I'm gonna have to order new clamps for the handguards and windscreen.

    How you liking it so far? I just recently got into dual sports and picked up an xt225 for super cheap. Its a good starter bike but I need something with more power and I've been looking at those DRZs.
