    They all do :jack Funny you say that as I spend 99% of my moto time riding assless now when I get on a dirt bike I always find myself stepping off the peg to shift. Only works for down shifts with the heel upshifts not so much.

    You definitely need an old school Alpina, right side shift. But, that won’t help with a left hand kicker..

    Just get a 300 and leave it in high gear they got lots of torque and will pull high gear from a stand still. :dunno

    I really should buy a fully assed bike probably be whatever spackle dirt bike falls in my lap cheap. Hell mabye even a jap dual sport a few of those running around yk deprecating. Not tew driven on the whole deal and I can have fun on any moto. The trick stuff is reserved for trials and bicycles. Have tew see where I end up.:jive

    There is a 2200 mile virgin XR650L on our CL that is tempting. But at $3000, it would make more sense to buy something new from Navin Motors, International.

    I'll be buying something local out of the very small pool of bikes up here. Or something that I come across at a moto event or in my travels tew and from on the bike trips. It's no rush at all.

    He had almost cartwheeled earlier when he went wrong way on the trail and was too lazy to hop the log. :lol3
