    This holds true for any vehicle. I haven’t bought a new one since 1983.

    She had to leave the Himalayan behind so she could fly home quickly before the coronavirus lockdown.

    She then bought the Honda at home and I'm not sure she's used it too much as yet because of travel restrictions.

    ** edit ** She's taken the Honda to Iceland so I'm a little behind the times with that one.

    Its still the Himalayan for me , we own two .
    My son just came back from Switzerland and Italy , did the Stella on it and to get out of France did a sprint of 670 miles on it in one go .
    We changed tyres and went off roading in the Dales , so trackable , so easy to ride and feels abit like the old G/S
    And yes i had all the EXC, WR , DRZ, KDX , CRM , CRE
    The Himalayan is a proper mid size overlad bike !

    That’s very kind of you, though being based down near Falmouth, N Yorkshire is a long way!

    G310 in the for sale section would fit the bill

    If you like the DRZ engine wise but want a better suspension and performance find yourself an immaculate late model CCM 404. lighter .WP suspension, Brembo brakes ,FCR carb

    Found this thread very interesting as I always like the idea of getting a green lane type of bike. The positive comments about the Himalayan got me interested so much that I checked it out on MCN reviews and dealer websites. In so doing I came across the Enfield Classic Trials 500 so I wondered how this would compare to the Himalayan as another possible option? Has anyone got one of these?

    SUZUKI DRZ400S V HONDA CRF250L/RALLY

    Lee , as you’ll know , I have your old DRZ 400 you may be interested to know that last month I was out on Salisbury Plain with a new Himalayan .


    That Himalayan is currently under a long warranty claim list

    I’d suggest that one of these bikes is a lot more fit for purpose than the other .
    Too shiny and clean to use it properly.
