Dual-sport

Sorry peeps I change my mind like i brush my teeth.....Wish i was made of money lol....But anyways whatís everybody take on dual sports...

1.what is your fave. model and why
2.do you have a over all opinion about them
3.Have you ever/do own/owned one..
skip question 4 if you havenít owned/have one
4.what model did own or have....

I was just curious i love going trail riding and stuff but hate loading the bike so figured it would be fun to have a dual sport bike....Im leaning towards the kawis klx650....
I would like something that more dirt then street or a even 50/50 but nothing like the bmw that thing is just stupid im my opinion....

If you're talking about the BMW R1200GS Adventure then you're also talking about a $16k price tag. Most likely, my next bike is going to be the R1200GS, but not the Adventure model which is more aimed for offroad.

Adventure
base aluminum

Standard GS
base rock red

I'm riding out to Northern Arizona next year and spending a week with my sister and brother in law. I'll be riding all over northern AZ, NM and hopefully some of NV. I'm ready to do it on the F4i, but I'd rather have the GS by then. It all depends on the size of my bonus.

BS, stay away from the kawi, for more reasons than i have time to post right now. Aftermarket parts availibility is low compared to Honda XR parts, or suzuki DRZ(sweet bike IMO) parts. My first question to you is what kind of tire do you plan to run? Do you want a Motard with dirt tires or motard with 17" street tires(more supermoto style)? basically, do you want a trail bike you can ride on the street, or a street bike you can ride on the trails? What price range? I have volumes of untapped motard info sittin in my head that i can give you, and ill be in DP/Clear lake area tomorrow if you want to meet up and discuss this. go to husqvarnausa.com and check out the 510 (red&white bike). just picked it up last week, and it rips!!!

you like the suzuki but not the husky smr510? what? You didn't answer any question i even asked bro, so what exactly are you looking for? BTW, that zook is bulletproof, and the 05's can be found used for less than 6G's now. Also, KTM has interchangeable wheelsets to go from dirt to street rather quickly, and their MSO's do not state "for off road use only" like a lot of the big 4's dirtbikes, therefore they are easy to register for street use. supermoto is a passion of mine(more than sportbikes!), and i would be glad to give you any info i can about the sport, but i need you to help me help you bro.

Sorry bro never saw the post but i will answer your questions.

Since my recent posts and some research i have found the kawi to be a bad choice as well.
I want a good all around tire but probably a knobby.
I want it for pretty much a 50/50 thing but i will take a little more dirt then a little more street.

I want it for commuting around and going out on the trails and what not but i would also like a bike that doesnít mind some high way miles...Pretty much i want a bike that doesnít exist lol....

I will be out riding all day tomorrow but if your around during the evening i will be sure to hit you up...

Im sorry man im just looking for a great all around bike but i would like something i could jump on and ride a few hundred miles and be ok....

Sounds like an XR650R should meet your requirements, and the bike gets my vote for many reasons: It's been around for years, and it will be around for many more. parts availability out the . good "legs" to it, (the top end will handle highway miles without any problems) can produce 55-60HP with minor mods and tuning. you can find these for sale in every state of the union, and usually not too expensive(if you're lookin used). street tires are cheap for the stock rims. i can go on and on. to look at a few good examples of tarded XR' up supermotojunkie.com and check the street tards section. BTW, that sight will have days of info for you to read, and those members are usually friendly and helpful. let me know if this helps, if not, i've got a few more suggestions.

yeah, those are just sporting 17's with street tires(more of a supermoto setup). It would actually be cheaper to ride with knobby tires since the SM wheels and tires run $1500+ on top of the purchase of the bike. You will want the XR650R over the E(maybe L model?) b/c it is liquid cooled, and that radiator will help in traffic situations. Also, there are thousands of go fast parts for these big honda's since they have gone (relatively) unchanged for the past 10-15 years. Also, if you wanted to keep the factory wheel size and just throw on some "sportsman" DOT tires, you would only be out about $150 for street tires. If you want more info, suggestions, or have any motard questions, just keep replying to this thread and i'll keep answering your replies.
