I’m 59. Also a “seasoned” rider and while it’s been a long time since I did off-road or dual sporting, I have quite a bit of experience in my past. In fact, I’m wanting to get back to it as I find myself close to retirement. Maybe do some BCDRs. I added a full exhaust and power commander to mine and it has never felt underpowered to me. Never really thought about the gearing from an off road perspective since I haven’t attempted it. It would be a compromise no doubt and limited, but...I can say as a backroad explorer it is a great machine and super easy to just jump on and go. As a short rider wanting to explore unimproved roads and light off road, I have toyed with the idea of adding either a Honda Rally or the new KTM 390 ADV.
