I finally bought a bike to go off road. Not a BMW, although it is a very capable off road machine and is street legal as well. I bought a Honda 1993 XR650L with an oversized IMS Tank and a full supertrapp exhaust. The honda Baja style enduro is not as well suited for on the road, but is lighter and maybe more suited for off road than many enduro style machines.
I just picked my bike up up this afternoon and hope all of you will find it in your hearts to welcome me to this part of the forum. I will post a picture soon, although after getting 16+ inches of snow a few days ago it may not be very soon. Happy riding to all, and may this portion of the forum welcome all.
