ADVRider inmates often argue over what makes the ideal adventure bike. So we’ve decided to try and find out. We are going to be running a series of polls asking you what you think constitutes the ideal adventure bike.
By the time we are done, we’ll combine all of your recommendations and report back on what you as the adventure riding community think would be the ideal adventure machine.
Since we are talking about the “ideal” adventure bike, there are going to have to be some compromises. Adventure riding is not the same for everyone, so for our first “ideal” adventure bike build, we are going to build a more travel-oriented machine, something that can comfortably and “easily” carry you around the world. If the poll series catches on, we can build a more hardcore enduro oriented machine as well.
To get everyone on the same page, we have set some criteria that you must use in making your decisions.
Your “ideal” travel-oriented adventure motorcycle must:
- Have the ability to readily traverse unimproved/unmaintained roads.
- Be able to cover long distances comfortably.
- Easily carry overnight supplies (food, clothing, shelter, etc) for a journey of at least a week before re-supplying.
Good luck! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
(Note: Poll results are given to you immediately after you make a choice. The yellow bar identifies your choice. At the end of each bar, the percentage of times that each choice was chosen is shown. If you miss seeing the results, simply go back and click on the poll again. Your choice, as well as the percentages for all choices, will be shown again.)
