yes, Michnus, I second Jacobsroodt's comments: your posts are inspirational, and we too think that TOO MANY people leap at 1200cc's, when in many (not all) cases, a DR 650 or similar would be a better 'tool' to achieve their overland dream!

We welcome the smaller adventure bikes being launched/developed: these will get more people onto dual sport/adventure bikes, more affordably, and in some cases, give them a BETTER experience, too.

So bring on the smaller adventure bikes!!!
