Paging Dr. Z

The DRZ400 is a formidable machine, known for it’s fear inducing power, engineering prowess, and stunning beauty.

Ok, that’s a lie. But that's not to say it’s a moto without merits. 

The most dubious honor that any bike can hold is a place in Icon's slabtown stable...especially for more than a few months. Most Icon steed are ridden hard and put away seized. And then sold for a loss on Craigslist. But not the DRZ.

This fine specimen has outlasted the rest and lived well beyond it’s life expectancy; passed down through three generations of wheelie squids, supermoto spackers, and maintenance averse luddites - she stands as a yellow homage to the overbuilt and underpowered.

She was beautiful once - well beautiful for a DRZ

The abuse came mercilessly.....

....and often

Help me Slabtown Joel....you’re my only hope....crackle, repeat, hologram fade.......
