Over the past month or so I have been seriously looking into buying a dualsport bike and having some fun. After reading about Clear Creek being closed for repairs the thought occured to me.. is this worth getting into?
I used to have dreams of a mellow ride on nice dirt roads with little or no traffic leading to a nice lake or something interesting to check out. I would spend some time with nature, jump back on the bike and ride out.
Am I totally kidding myself here? I live in Livermore, Ca. I have zero interest in having some kids doing wheelies up my back while I stop to take a picture of a bird in a tree
I just want to cover more ground with a motorcycle than I could walking. I like the idea of a fun ride over some mild challenges but I can't see myself jumping over anything or speeding through the woods dodging slow moving trees.
I have seen websites selling trail maps etc but I am not sure they are legit. I have read people talking about all kinds of secret riding areas too but I am not really sure what that means (illegal places?).
I just thought I better ask the people that know (TT seems to be a great place). Before I buy, maybe as soon as this weekend, can a guy like me enjoy the sport?
Thanks in advance for any advice
