I snagged an SCR950, and I'm contemplating adventure riding with it. I've never really ridden much off-road. I had a TW200 that i flogged through the woods occasionally, but always at a pretty slow pace. There are no fire roads or anything really interesting except power line trails around here. And... honestly those aren't interesting at all. There aren't even any dirt roads. But I'd really like to take a trip somewhere, and maybe meet up with some inmates and go interesting places. But how bad an idea is that, really? I mean the big GS bikes weigh about the same... granted they do have better suspension. Am I being dumb? I mean, it's no Triumph Scrambler... but I did fit it with longer shocks and slide the tubes down flush with the top of the triple tree (1/4" height gain in the front, 1.75" rear). I often see little dirt roads in the mountains near asheville and I have always avoided them on my street bikes previously. I'd like to do some exploring instead... Charles.
