But I don't have a bike to ride cross-country and get off the road when I get there. So one of these may find its way into my garage.
Keep it up! I'll keep denying that I need one of these too and keep an eye on this thread for new ideas.
Don't NEED one??? Do we really NEED any of these bikes? Ok, so they are a form of therapy...at least in my book. I actually rode all 3 of my street legal bikes today, tho just for local errands. Hadn't ridden the RT in a few weeks and it really felt small (size and height wise) compared to the XC and the DRZ. They're all great, but if I had to cut back to just one bike, it would be the XC, for just the reasons you mention!
Go for it!
