For those of you who have more race oriented dualsport bikes (KTM EXC's, WRf's, Husaberg, CRf's etc with tags), how far on the street is your typical tolerance (miles) to go ride on the trails? How about a discussion of the tradeoffs. I ride a KTM EXC 400 in dirt and live about 44 miles from the mountain trails. We typically trailer our bikes and gear to save on knobbies, oil changes and other wear (valves etc). But, I've been rethinking that. (BTW - have considered the more road oriented dual sports, but enjoy the race oriented bikes in the dirt too much.) If we trailer: Load bikes and gear. Drive to trails - approx 50 minutes. Unload Check tire pressure, lube chain Get dressed Ride Trails Load back up to go home. Drive 50 minutes home Unload bikes and gear. Wash bikes Crank bikes and ride the wet off and add stablizer (Note - Load and unload bikes and gear 4 times, plus extra clothing changes - a lot of loading/unloading for a few hours of riding) If we ride to the mountains. Get dressed/gear check tire pressure, lube chain ride on street for 50 minutes Ride Trails Ride home 50 minutes If muddy, rinse bike at car wash on the way home Tradeoffs: Extra time loading/unloading when trailering, plus cost of truck gas etc. vs. Extra time/cost of changing tires, oil/filters and valve checks etc. Your thoughts?
