The big thing at bike shops these days seems to be ‘gravel bikes’ – something that might not be as good off-road as well as a mountain bike, but is more fun on-road than a mountain bike and handles gravel, potholes, and ruts better than some delicate pampered street bike (“Oops!” CRUNCH! “Oh well, I didn’t need that front wheel. Or those forks. Or that frame.”) I want the moto equivalent – something that’s lower, lighter, and sleeker than an Adv bike, has an inch or two more ground-clearance and suspension travel than a street bike, and is more fun on long rides than perching atop some mammoth thumper that’s almost as tall as a pro basketball player (“He shoots! He scores!” Beep beep). Unfortunately, the only option around here seems to be the Ducati Scrambler, and I’m not so sure about this hipster thing. I’d have to get a beard and grow a few decades younger, which might be a bit of a trick When is Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, or Kawasaki going to make a machine (“Ho! It’s Scrambuleru!”) to go head-to-head with the Ducati?
