I've ridden an 04 1150 GSA, a KTM 5??exc, an XR650L, XR600R, 1200GS, and of course a DL650, which some would not necessarily consider a big adventure bike.
Compared to my 07 YZ450f, that 02 426 I put in the picture is a big heavy bike. That's not my point. My point is that personally, if I just dropped over 12 thousand dollars on a T800; I wouldn't ride it like my 426. Sure, I'd take it off road; but if I dropped it or scratched it, or in some other way screwed it up....I'd be bummed out. So if I had a Tiger 800; which I'm seriously thinking about....I would be careful with it off-road. Maybe that's just me.
