I recently bought an 05' for dirt. I'd love to get a motard one too. How street worthy is it?

The TRD is a sweet looking bike, but I'd be too old to ride before finding one for sale. :(

Sure is an unusual looking design. Looks fitting for a cruiser, but not sure about the off-road 1/2 of dual-sporting. I'm aware that a lot of dual sports never see dirt.

Not too sure about 5 wheels. Seems it would be getting too heavy & expensive.

It you want more traction, maybe think about powering the front wheels. That would give you "all wheel drive"....
