No offense intended, even if it may have come across that way. I am just getting into long distance riding (relatively speaking) after over 30 years of riding big bikes. I doubt I could even get on a KLR anymore, at least without lowering it, which pretty much relegates it to on road riding. I wouldn't even consider a GS. I do still ride my XT225 a lot, it is a small bike, but those little 125cc scooters are like riding toys. It's a whole different thing. Takes me back to the mini bikes I had as a kid. Not that long ago I would have laughed at anyone who was planning a several hundred mile trip on one. Not anymore. Now I'm laughing behind my face shield on my 125 flying down the road at 50 mph.
