I can trail ride with motocross bikes and burn your sports car at the stop light. I don;t care about your turbo either.

What am I?
A douchebag?

Some people on this very site have taken their NC700X's on "actual rough sections" without them falling apart.

Weird.

Is it spelled Adventure Rider if you leave out the twist?

I prefer Termimators. As most of us are ATGATT. I know I look wierd as hell on a red KLR covered in mud and a milk crate top box wearing a black helmet hiviz jacket red and black klim pants and fox mx gloves. but meh I don't care what other people think I trying to be seen when I'm on the black shit and seen when I'm on the dirt in case I went over a cliff or something similar (easier for S&R to find when I hit the SPOT) course Ive also got a camo net for hiding out when I want to.

I'm imagining the guy who rides a 550 pound "dirt bike" with aluminum cases down to starbucks for a latte, while he brags about how he could ride across africa at a moments notice if he wanted to, and refers to that one time he rode on a 2 lane, graded gravel road as "gnarly single track."

So whats the name for this guy?

In the interest of full disclosure, the description above hits pretty close to home, except I dont drink Lattes.
Motorcyclist!
