Depends on where you are fishing as well....for wade fishing in St Pete Florida a cruiser will suffice...

A Ural with a sidecar. TRhats what I want anyway for taking fishing/camping trips

Between my Tiger and the wife's KLR, there are damn few trout streams in north GA they haven't seen. The Tiger ventures a little further into NC and TN.

For the big water, I use this:

NIce set up. My next bike will be the WR250R. Hopefully by the end of this year or the first part of 2013.

Great lookin rig!

I have been looking hard at both the WR250R & the WR250X. I hope one of these can be added to my stable this season or next. The R may be too tall for me since my inseam is only 30." Both look great & lots of good reviews.

Thanks!

That pic is a bit old and I've added Wolfman racks to better support the "wings" on the sides of the Alpha (they can get heavy with my tools, etc. in there), but this setup is still going strong!

Re. height, there are lots of options for that. The bike comes with an adjuster that allows you to lower the seat by 1". If that doesn't work for you, there are varying lengths of "dog bones" that will lower the seat even further. Just slide the forks up in the clamps to even it out and you're good to go.

I've been hearing that you can lower them pretty easily... that's good for me.

I wonder how low you can go?

So how cool is that ?? A riding AND fishing thread !! I usually ride to Or, Id or Mt to fish for trout - so distances are around 800-1500 mi round trip. It's a bit farther for Dorado in Baja, so a smaller dirt bike just aint in the cards. I like to enjoy the riding / journey part too. The Uly was a great camping / fishing mule - and D616s or Distanzias worked pretty well. I now use tiggers - 800xc with K60's or TKC's if more dirt required ,or Girlie with Anakee2's if mostly tarmac access. I dont like too much stuff hanging off the machine (already look like the clampets are arriving) so I procured a bunch of the cabelas stowaway 7 rods for cheap, as they were transitioning to new 6 piece. (Orvis also makes 7 pc rods - but spendy) the cabelas 4wt tube is 17" - the 5-7 wt are about 20". They fit nicely in a Sealine 70 ltr waterproof bag, that also holds 4 large boxes of flies, tent, all camping gear & food - it all rests comfortably across pillion & side cases. Camp chair sits on top of the heap. All the 7 pc rods cast surprisingly well. Lots of reserve power & no ferrule 'flat spots'. Not sure they're available anymore though.
