For I think the first time ever on this site, I have to disagree with you Kevin. I think the DRZ-SM would make a pretty bad starter bike for anyone...mainly because the bike's power band simply inspires you to do illegal things on it...like wheelies and riding over other people's lawns.

It's also pretty good at doing other hooliganisms...like stoppies and burnouts.

I think the 400SM is not a good bike for a person just starting out...it MIGHT be okay for the guys riding in the dirt for years and switching over...but for a very first foray into two wheel fun, I don't think it's a great idea.
