Hi all, Need some advice. Been lurking for years, dreaming of having time to do this as I worked 6-7 days a week for far too long Been a road rider for 30+ years, currently on a BMW RS 1200R and just swapped from a triumph speed triple into a more relaxed Speed Twin. Haven't ridden dirt since I was 12 (so 40 years ago). Now in semi-retirement, have time and finally able to pursue some hobbies along with some mates in the same boat. My goal is to go out ~10x a year - a few overnight, some day trips with pals. Utah and ID terrain mostly. I'm guessing skills will return quick, but not at the skillset you guys have Would like advice on an adventure bike that will be easy enough for a relative newb but good enough to not want to immediately swap out once I feel at home. Reliability a factor as well as on the Haynes guides I'm a 3 (2 if electric cause I hate that crap) . Right now thinking I'd trailer it down, vs looking for something that would be comfy on a multi-hr highway ride. Was initially thinking 250-500cc range , though I got a friend who is instantly looking at the tenere 700 vs KTM. Just need reliability, suspension and clearance good enough for my 200# ass and an engine that will keep me grinning and out of trouble but not be over the top. I doubt Ill be breaking any speed records in the dirt, but don't want to piddle. Something in the happy middle. Thank you kindly. Looking forward to being an active part of the community instead of daydreaming at work!
