I so want to use this as my signature (and attributed to you)... but I may be guilty of the very same - although I do ride my bikes a lot more than others around me do... but it's all commuting these days.

It's too new to know anything about it but how about the 2wd Christini Dual Sport 450? 49 state street legal.

There are a couple threads about it in Thumpers.

Chinese copy of the last-gen Honda 450 motor with smaller valves and a very mild cam, very choked up and with a 30-day warranty. Small gas tank with no good options for extending the range.

The 2WD system apparently works really well though.

And y'all bitch about the price of KTM's and Huskies?

That thing will be made out of pure, genuine unobtainium.

Yeah.. Anything with "electronic preload adjustment" is going to be too expensive for me. Maybe if it sells well then someone else will decide to make a more economical version of the concept.
