DR-Z 400: Given the chance again, I would...
I'm delighted to say that after owning a DRZ for the past 4 years and covering thousands of miles on it, and gearing it all up for touring spec. I have gone and bought another. It's funny to think that in hindsight (obviously with a low mileage specimen, not a single scratch and kept in a garage since original purchase) with a blank canvas and experience in modding the bike that there are some things I'm wildly enthusiastic about changing, others not so much.
I plan to document every change I make to the new bike and justify from experience why some things are a good idea and why some are not.
I by no means am a mechanic, or have any professional backing against my statements, I'm just a layman remarking on things from experience with this type of bike.
Let me know if you'd be interested in following!
