Post your light weight Adventure Bike Builds here. Criteria for this thread is: 1. 200 mile fuel range 2. Some type of panniers or soft luggage to accommodate a multi day trip 3. Windscreen or fairing you have purchased or made that provides more coverage than stock, unless the bike came with a fairing like the CRF250L Rally. 4. No more than 400 lbs wet weight with a full tank of fuel, including any extra fuel you carry, panniers and all installed hard parts, not including what you will carry on your bike such as tools, sleeping bag, tent or cooking equipment 5. Parts for your bike should be readily available in the USA in case you break down, during a trip, and need parts in a few days. I wanted to start this thread because of a recent conversation I had with the Honda rep who is charge of the new 2019 Honda CRF450L for the USA. He didn't seem to think anyone would use a light weight dual sport motorcycle for adventure riding much less set it up with panniers and a windscreen. This thread can show how many riders are already doing this with the current crop of light weight dual sport bikes. Project managers and marketing staff need to know how big a market is before they will commit to building the light weight adventure bikes many of us want. So you want to ride the TAT, the Continental Divide Trail or ride some of the BDR trips that have already been laid out for all of us. What bike should you take? The challenge for me is not the pavement or well graded dirt roads on a trip like this. It is the rocky, off camber, loose and deep sand that can turn an enjoyable trip into a nightmare for me, especially if I'm riding alone. I'm sure many of you have seen the videos of riders on 1200cc adventure bikes struggling through difficult sections of a ride and often need the help of 3 other riders just to get back on the trail. I realize there are many riders out there that love the difficult sections but I would rather spend my day riding than spending it picking up a 610 lb. bike. I have two adventure bikes in my garage. A BMW R1200GS Rally and a DRZ400S I have setup for adventure riding. I put both on a pallet scale yesterday with full tanks of fuel, 4.0 gallons on the DRZ and 5.3 gallons on the BMW, and two hard panniers and the DRZ was 232 lbs. lighter at 378 lbs. The BMW was 610 lbs. That is a big difference, especially when I am riding through deep sand, mud or steep rock terrain. When off road and the trail is challenging, I have more fun on the DRZ and dealing with 232 lbs less weight.
