  1. Comfort is not really an issue. I've never ridden a streetbike with a windshield, & don't feel I need to start now:P AND I just realized this should probably be in the dual sport forums. Sorry guys. Thanks dman. How many kms can I expect out of an engine?
  2. SO... I haven't owned a dirtbike in close to three years. Last year I got my motorcycle licence(street), and bought a 82 yamaha maxim 550, then later uppgraded to a RoadStar 1600. Ive been wanting to get back into off road riding, but was planning on taking the summer off and riding/travelling/backpacking around the west coast ( mainly Alaska & British Columbia). Now, IMO, the ideal bike for a 4000+ km (2400 miles approx) trip would be a cruiser. However, a few of my friends recently purchased dirtbikes, so I have riding buddies again. Since I plan on not working this summer, and going on a trip, I obviously cant afford to buy another motorcycle. But, if a dual sport bike would suit the kind of riding I plan to do (fields, trails, mud, and long highway rides) I would happily trade my Roadstar for a dual sport. Now, obviously I want to know how suitable these bikes are for highway rides.. (gas mileage, passing power, fuel capacity, comfort, luggage, etc.) but i also have a few other questions.. 1 : How are they for maintenance? How long do the chain/sprockets last w/ moderate maintenance? etc. My old KX used to need 3 hours of maintenance per hour of riding, lol. 2: How long will these bikes hold up? 15 000 kms? 30 000kms? 100 000???? 3: Any other advice I should know?? And in case anyone is wondering.. I found a 1996 Suzuki Dr-350 for sale. Its about $3000, which is very reasonably priced for prices around here. 12000 kms, only one season on the tires and chain. It looks absolutely immaculate and has never seen dirt. Insurance and plates/tags is $120 for 6 months. As well Id have money to spare after selling my road star. How would this hold up on the highway? Would it still be fun (powerwise, little bit of jumping) off road compared to my late 90's KX125 ? Thanks. Any input or long distance dual sport riding experience is greatly appreciated. Ive always thought a streetlegal dirtbike would be loads of fun.
