Thanks man!

A lot slower comes to mind first. LOL. But of course.

Its not bad really as far as feel. Although heavy compared to an MX bike, but a lot lighter compared to the RC. It will be great in the twistys and around town. I def had a smile on my face while riding and swerving side to side like I'm warming up the tires.

Suspension seems to be a little stiff up front.

My comparo's probably suck. The RC was my first "real" bike where I really tried to get the feel for the bike and ride it properly. So its really all I know.

I think it will be good to have two completely different bikes. I'm sure it will be difficult at first going from one extreme to the other. Hopefully it makes me a better rider in that aspect.

All in all I like the DR-Z! Def looking forward to really riding it.
