I"m picking up an 05 Dakar (base model, the blue one) for my wife. I know its got some lower end parts on it and is a tad heavy, but are there any owners of this model out there that have any imput for me. I might swap a few things out to bring the weight down some, because the 17" did weigh 32 pounds, which is alot for my 125lb wife to push around. She is sold on the fs though because of the comfort and the kind of riding we do. Any input or suggested mods would be greatly appreciated.
