Well, it's been a few years since I've owned a bike, and this time around I want a legal bike that will perform very well in the dirt. I live in the Palm Springs CA area and I weigh ~250 pounds. It gets pretty hot out here for a couple of months and I don't want to have overheating issues or put undue stress on the machine. I know that air-cooled is the tried-and-true, simple design, but is it really sufficient? Can anyone explain why Honda offers a similar bike water cooled but not legal? How much better is the off-road bike? I'm not looking for any guarantees, but is it Really possible to plate the off-road version? Thanks in advance, any help will be appreciated.
