Hi all, I am over my CB250, at less than half the power of a decent LAMS restricted bike. Happily, I've been given the okay to sell it and get a more suitable LAMS bike for the next nine months to a year. Afterwards I may upgrade to a wee-strom or something. I am looking at the Suzuki DR-Z400SM motard for this interval. I live in the hills, so there are lots of fun to be had nearby. I don't need to commute. I don't really like sportsbikes. I'm open to suggestions for other bikes. However: 1. I am 5'7 with a 30" inseam. That puts me on tiptoes, or at least the balls of my feet. The bike is light, and I am physically pretty strong. Do you think I'd be able to handle it? 2. The budget is pretty low. Probably in the 5k-6k range. that means I might have to go for a well used machine. If I buy a motard which has done over 20,000k or even 30,000k, how likely is it that I will get a lemon? Of course I searched and read quite a few threads first. Peace.
