I think we're in the same boat there ....
I kind of like the new 4-stroke 250's more though, as they are getting more and more like 2-strokes yet still being a 4 stroke.
I'd rather get a Yamaha or Honda compared to a BMW, a lot less expensive and probably a better bike ...
the tires in the pics are all mainly street but the Avon Distanzia's are a good tire for both.
Yeah, I'm deciding between a dual-sport and a Supermoto. I don't know much between either of them, but it seems the Supermoto's are geared more for racing, while the dual-sports are actually meant for on and off-road.
Thinking of a 450 too. My dad had a 650 he used to ride in the trails (dual sport), but it was way too much power for the bush. You don't really need to be going 140 km/h when your flying past trees.
actually, the supermoto's can do all that the dual sport can plus more. it's just a matter of finding the right tires. trust me, go supermoto....you will thank me later.
Hmm ... I'll probably put some thought into it. I need a license plate on the front too, but I'm sure you could do that ... I also wouldn't mind some signal lights, front and brake lights, etc ...
Add-on: wow, after looking at the size of some of those Dual-Sport, I think you might be right about the Super-Moto's daddy. What companies would you recommend? I wouldn't mind a front / rear headlight ... if at all possible.
Add-on*: Thinking about this too.
