In the original message, I did not mean "crappy" suspension in general, just for Busa-type riding.
Thanks guys, I am anxious to go tear up the trails. It is really going to take me a while to used to this beast....
Howlin': I wanted the DRZ400 as well, but I got this one cheaper than I could find a DRZ. The DRZ is lighter and probably better for kicking it in the dirt. The LC4 is bigger, and I hope better, for hauling my phat azz around.
