You're right it was back in 2007 on a Ducati Hypermotard (1100cc)

I remember there was a video with the outtakes of him falling off before he mastered that one handed backing it in slide.

I saw that! That counter balancing shaft seems to be a thing of beauty as it reduces vibrations through the whole bike and extends the service intervals out for somebody that wants to use it daily on the road. I'm tempted as she is so pretty.

But... It is a high price. Would I be better off buying a DRZ400SM and modding it for better bang for buck? I've read some rave reviews about the pint sized moto from Suzook, and I want it to help improve my skids and wheelie skills as well as help out with commuting duties alongside the GSXS (so, when it's raining so I don't have to deal with the muck flung up my back from the GSXS!)

I've been going back and forth on the DRZ and Husky 701. On the DRZ, with a few mods, (3x3, exhaust, and FCR carb) you will probably get up to 40hp. I used to have a WR250X...it was 25lbs lighter than the DRZ but only made 27-ish HP...it was a fun bike but I needed just a little more. I'd hate to get a DRZ, modify it..and still want more...decisions, decisions...

That is exactly the quandry I'm in. Although, with the DRZ you can still go bigger bore and even longer stroke if you're keen. The thought of having a bit of a project is nice too, as I would definitely go bigger bore, just to build an engine again (and its far cheaper than stroking the GSXS to get an engine project!)

The DRZ was a foregone conclusion for me with the reduced service intervals of the Husky, but now they've pushed it out so they are the same I am torn between the two. Will have to add up the costs of modding the DRZ and see how much it comes out to. That'll make my decision, I reckon.

F*ck it. I just called the Husky dealership. They said inventory supply will be much better this year than last. I'm going to swing by the dealership tomorrow and put a deposit down on one!
