Nothing wrong with owning multiple bikes, I've subsribed to that theory for ten years. I had a Honda sportbike in the mid 90's but drew more tickets than I wanted. Over-compensated with a FXDX for a year, then discovered the BMW twins suited me better. Have had some sort of dual-sport ride since '95.

Guess the message I just wrote went to the netherland, anyway, if you got it ignore this one. My first experience with dual sport was something like a 67 or so Big Bear Scrambler 250cc two stroke by Yamaha, that is if you don't count mopeds and scooters. That scroundle ate me from one end to the other on more than one occasion, but I was young and invincible in those days, I learned from it the value of shutting of the engine before gassing up and what a shorted coil feels like thru the gas tank, not to cross the loose gravel in the middle of the road while you are wide open, how much mud it takes to completely lock up the front wheel under one of those close fitting fenders and a lot more, ah, those were the days.

jgas was the one setting up a ride this spring, I guess I got on to you by mistake. There are a lot of roads around here around Ouchita, fire roads and such, but again, not in deer or turkey season, people like to shoot at fast moving objects in the woods to much.
