You can walk around the world but that doesn't help dirt hokie who is looking for a bike meeting these criteria. "I need a bike that can do a 10 day 2800 mile adventure ride around the Rockies, e start, fuel injection, able to carry some gear, and be competitive Senior C class hare scrambles and last me 10 years." The racing part eliminates the Japanese soft bikes and any heavier dual sports availablele the USA. You ask where 80+ mph matters. West of the Mississippi. Where one finds the Rocky Mountains. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:US_Speed_Limits.svg A KTM 500 EXC is happy at any posted speed limit in North America, will carry some gear, be competitive in most any class hare scrambles, and last over 10 years. Go back and read his post. Anyone have a better suggestion for dirt hokie? And please, don't suggest another Honda Ruckus. Oh, and dirt hokie, don't fall in love with a KTM 690 until you've ridden one fast on rough trails. It has great power and is fun on dirt roads but the suspension sucks when things get rough. A 20 year old 640 LC4E would be a better bet than a 690 for what you say you're looking for.
