I have an 2004 street legal SXC, and love it, but am about to start asking it to possibly start doing more street duty, to the point I'm wondering if I should spring for an Adventure (used) I know a lot of the differences, and figure I can make them non issues, but don't know if there are any more. Vibes are not an issue, at least with my bike. Differences I know are tank size, gearing, cush hubb, wind protection. Which I can easily duplicate those things on the SXC. Are there any other differences that would make the SXC not road worthy? Electrical output? Lighting? Carrying capacity? Brakes? I have 5 gallon tank on the SXC, so non issue, that's plenty. I have a Renazco seat on it, so the things about as comfortable as it can get. I can put a shorty fairing on it that would probably offer MORE protection than the Adventure if I want. I can change the gearing to be anything I want, and already have 40 and 45 rears, and 14,16,17 front sprockets. Though I've never tried the 40 rear. I can get a cush hubb wheelset and have two sets for dedicated dirt and true dual sport/street wheels. I would get some SW-Motech racks so I can mount aluminum panniers for when I need them camping, that's the same on both bikes. The only thing that concerns me, is the bike seems 'twitchy' on the road at 65 and above. I had a DR650, and riding them back to back was like night and day for cruising. The DR felt planted and stable at speed, the SXC feels like a racebike that is very tall and unstable. When I did that comparison, I was geared for dirt on the SXC, so very high revs. Other than that, I've not ridden road miles except connecting or getting to trails. It may also be tire differences. What else? Is there an reason I should try to replace the SXC with a true Adventure, or better to Adventurize my SXC? Dirt is still the priority. What I'll be doing with it is riding local dirt, real dirt riding, riding hard and falling sometimes. Then I'll be putting in on my bike-hauler and taking it up to Georgia/Carolina's, for some street/dirt combo tours, camping off of it. Sometimes with my 10 year old. Also Cont Divide or TAT type stuff, possibly in 2008, but more likely 2009. And I don't want to add any bikes, I'm simplifying things and if anything reducing the number of engines I have to maintain. Thanks for your help!
