Safer on a dual sport bike..... What a lot of nonsense.
Different bikes are optimised to different situations, with "dual-sport" bikes being the all rounders. They are compromised in just about every way.
Safety is not about the bike, but about riders being aware of their surroundings, and riding within limitations of the bike they are using.
there are old motorcyclists and bold motorcyclists
but you seldom meet an old, bold motorcyclist
