Do I Really Want A Dual Sport???

Recommended Posts

Have you ridden much in the dirt before? IMO, you need a dirtbike for the dirt, and a streetbike for the street. The dual-sport that I've ridden (a friend's DRZ-400S) was very scary in the dirt. Way too heavy with a high center of gravity. ?

. :cry:

hmmmm nice quote..... Your CRF is a great bike. have you ridden a trail bike like a WR450 or 450 EXC? curious of your comparison to the CRF particulary your top heavy feeling comment.

Motard is big in Europe and just getting started in USA.

Actually, it's getting RE-started in the US. They used to be called

super bikes or something similar 20-years ago but never really caught

on.

That Husky is S W E E T!

Dual sports are the only way to go. I predict that dualsports will be

the only way to go in the not so distant future thanks to eco-nazis,

irresponsible off roaders and loud pipes.

It's so nice to go to places like Moab where the only way to connect

trails is to do a little road burn and you don't have to worry about

being cited for riding on the street. :cry:

Its pretty outrageous. These things take a different approach to road racing. They actually slide the rear end around turns, ON ASPHALT, with these things, then do some racing on dirt ... all in the same race. And they look cool too. :cry:

USA created it, back in the '80's. I remember watching the superbike races on TV...Harley-Davidsons getting whipped by Honda CR500s!!!

It has grown into a huge sport in Europe as SuperMotard. It is a fun spectator sport, because the tracks are compact in size and the racing is usually tight and action packed :cry:

Back to the original thread...you need 3 bikes! (dirt bike, street bike, dual sport) :cry:
