    I might have to try that as there are no Mission fronts anywhere!

    :lol3 For some reason this hit my funny bone this morning, and coffee spewed on my desktop and keyboard.
    Take care of my Idaho while I'm gone making a living. Hope to return for more than a few moty-sickle rides now and then.

    Eventually, someone comes in here to debate "what's actually off road?" and then some jerk posts photos of themselves airborne and the cycle restarts again.

    Is pulling off to the shoulder of the road and then taking a pic considered going off road? Asking for a friend…

    Quick pit stop while running some 2 track forestry roads. Great morning. I love this bike!

    So is this GS off road or more technically "on" the (off) road?

    I think this could be a great philosophical question . And for that matter, if the case and handlebar is touching the ground, and both tires are in the air, could it be both offroad and on the road? Or neither on the road or offroad. I’ve managed to confuse myself again. Could be the bourbon though :dunno

    Yes. Just make sure none of the pavement shows up in the pic

    Every social media photo of a bike that's not a dual sport has the bike off-pavement like "I know if you just turned the camera the other way, the road is RIGHT THERE" why everyone parks their sport bikes on dirt is kind of funny.

    One true tell about "off road" is the amount of dirt, mud, dust and rider gear condition. After a month plus in central America, you and your bike start looking the same. I've still got trail dust jammed into places. Facebook-%20Jan%2016%202011%2C%2010-11-08%20UTC_native.jpg
