    Ha ha, I saw a BMW F800GS that was in my price range and I nearly bought it so there might be something to it.

    The WR was supposed to go today but the guy couldn't make it here in time.

    New bike arrives Thursday arvo.

    Terrific on tar, better than knobbies on hard wet clay, not so good in slop.

    Fine looking sled tHetREV...your car not so much...needs new tyres!
    Speaking of those MT90's the DR I just bought came with a new set of those. Went for a ride with Sunshine coast adv riders last Sunday. The guys were eyeing off the MT90's but they actually felt good on the trails. Went over Greasy T which thankfully was dry but they did track well across clay sections as Ron50 said.
    New D606 and GT723 ready to go on this week.

    They will be getting changed tomorrow.

    It came with a set of knobbies and this bike will see very little tar. I wasn't a fan on the short road ride I took it on. The WR would have seen some road if I had kept it. It was a lot nicer to ride on the road.

    Not sure if right spot for this.
    These new 2 strokes with variable engine thingy?? Like the beta 300 x trainer. Would they do a moderate amount of road miles to get from one place to another. Or am I dreaming??

    I don't own one, but have spoken with owners. My understanding is that they will do transports, but in standard trim they can feel less than ideal at a constant throttle setting in cruise mode. I have been told that a heavier flywheel makes a marked difference.
    I rode a TY250 twinshock from Adelaide to Lismore, so you can ride anything on the road if you need to.
