And for what it's worth, if you're planning to take a hack offroad, what you want is a Ural. Hands down. It isn't a mile muncher, but you can bang it through all kinds of crap. I don't even have...

I've got a 35" inseam but I'm only 5'11". I never met a street bike I couldn't flat foot, but bar reach can be a problem. Tarmac traillies have leg room in spades yet the bars are easy to reach,...

Dave, yes, it's MS. It's tough because I used to be in the camp that did big miles and long days, and now I just can't. I put 15K on the Super10 the first summer, but I haven't ridden it since...

Cooking stuff? Nope. I don't even cook at home, let alone while traveling. There's plenty of food that doesn't need cooking. Also, it's good to eat whatever can be bought in local eateries along...
