And who says there's no innovation in plowing implements?
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.
haha feel free I would be honored. Hey as long as you're getting some saddle time in it's all good.
maybe 350 cc is enough?
It's too new to know anything about it but how about the 2wd Christini Dual Sport 450? 49 state street legal.
Something here that might interest you all:
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.
That is very close to my ideal.
Can't wait for more spec's.
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.
I just keep riding this one.
What he said

sounds promising except for one thing, I doubt they will ever make it to the states.
It's interesting seeing Llewelyn's opinion of the 450CCM now that he has ridden it. I ride with him occasionally and I know how hard he can push an Enduro bike. If he says it is good, it is. :)
Not exactly adventure bikes, but close. Factory supported only most of them, I vote we steal them from the next Paris Dakar "Gone in 60 Seconds" style. I call dibs on the KTM.
I'll take the Honda!
(I've just ordered about a $1000 worth of stuff to convert an '03 DRZ 400 E to ADV. I'll post a pic soon's all the stuff arrrives and gets installed. (Doesn't include the 7.5 gal Safari tank. Yet.)
(This is a replacement for the DRZ-S stolen last year. )
Lights and signals - an ADV bike needs to be street-legal, eh?
