Made the leap

Well I finally made the jump into DS riding. I was contemplating a bigger bike at 1st (VStrom or DR650) but tried a DRZ over the spring and just loved it. I've been looking off an on since and came...

Good suggestions. I'd go with the naked GS500. The fared bikes just have too much plastics for a novice on 90% dirt roads. A 2001 GS was my 1st bike. Great starter. I just got a Nighthawk 750...

I definitely wasn't including the Tiger as a budget option. I've seen a couple 2003-2005s out there since I started this thread and they're all selling for about the same as an ~07 Wee Strom ($5k...

rut-ro
I test rode a 955i yesterday. I fear there may be no going back. I didn't go "hooligan" on a bike that wasn't mine, but acceleration was very smooth. Didn't seem as abrupt as my SV650S...

I'm in your same boat. I've narrowed my search to the VStrom (both 650 and 1000) as well as the Triumph Tiger 955i. I have an SV650 so I already know what a champ that motor is and how easy it is...

So the spoked wheels still take tubeless, right?

Ah so maybe I haven't done my homework enough yet...
So the spoked rims require tubed tires? I've only had tubeless, what are the advantages/disadvantages of the two?

Yeah I saw that one. The guy had it posted here on ADVrider as well. Why do you say 06 is the best year? I was more inclined to go for the spoked wheels on the 03/04.

Laugh Odd choice maybe, but Wee Strom or Tiger 955?

So I've been riding for over 5 years now, the last 3+ on a SV650S. The sport bike setup is finally catching up to me (my back in particular) and the adv bikes are really interesting to me. I'll...
