I'm coming from road bikes so the Dirt is new to me. I ultimately want a good Adventure bike to ride across the country (US) next year when I move to the east coast, so I can take more scenic routes and some of the TAT. I've heard that learning on a small Dirt bike is a good idea. So, should I get a Dirt Bike for the next year and get used to the Dirt or just go all out and get an Adventure bike right off the bat and learn on that for a year? I've fallen for the KTM 1190 but sadly it's not available in the US yet, so if I DID get an adventure bike now it'd probably be the 990. As for a dirt bike; it would need to be road legal. I'm not too keen on a used one though. So what's the consensus: learn or just go for it and get used to a big Adventure bike?
