You're right, it's a little difficult to see up close without stooping. That was kind of the idea. (Wife didn't want me to do it.) It gets pretty obvious in the twisties, though. The yellow actually fades to red. That's not too clear in the pix, either.
Actually, used DR prices are pretty low. It's not a real powerful bike - no second-gear wheelies - but it's way fun on our local river roads, which are mostly gravel. Part of the reason I got the Burgman rather than a big sport touring bike was that I could justify keeping the dirt bike.
Also, I've had a lot of people ask "who makes it" about mine because the "Suzuki" sticker on the back gets lost in the silver paint, and the little logo on the front isn't exactly easy for non-bike-people to decipher....and uh, what the heck is a "BURGMAN" ??!! :wink:
