Iíve owned a lot of bikes, but really you need a big dual sport -it can do more than double duty. A pure dirt bike is extreme fun on the trails, You need a sport bike to take out early on a Sunday morning through curvy roads as fast as you can and scare hell outta your self. And you need a big cruiser to calm your soul. Maybe a big touring bike for out of state travel. BUT you can do all these things ( maybe not 100% ideally) but you can- on a big dual sport.
