Before he strands himself out in the middle of BFE? :evilgrin0013:


Oh - I'm no better. Just as likely to happen to me on the CBR cept he does it a lot more often.

I entirely agree. Plus, I want to see all the really cool pics he can manage to take in the back country. :D

Im not so sure there is a better choice for him than his R1. I didn't realize the amount of miles that guy puts on that bike. A single won't cut it... period. A twin is not much better IMHO, ya ya BMW but who can afford that :evilgrin0013:

After riding with him this weekend I am not so sure he really needs one - Titus was totally doable, from what we saw, on my CBR. If that is the extent of the "Adventure" he is looking for he may have the right equipment, and more importantly mindset.

Would it be fun to do Titus Canyon on a sportbike? Hell yes if you are passing a broken down KTM/BMW adventure bike!!! You can't expect to keep a bike beautiful long doing this kinda stuff - but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I could care less about a few bumps and scrapes on my adventure bike.

To expect 100k miles out of a dualsport (single or twin) without a top end is unrealistic isn't it? I don't even know if a KLR could do that, but Sam's R1 will.

Kinda why I am interested in lookin at the Triumph Tiger 800XC ... Inline triple - would it hold up to that amount of road abuse?

Whoaaa Nelly !! That nice, flat section up to and in the back end of the Canyon ain't nuthin indicative of the tough section. Carl knows the name of it, but, Red Ridge(?) is a whole lot nastier than the flat & deep sandy sections. When I went, it had big ruts & big rocks even in the steep switchbacks...and there was a bunch of those. A good dirty guy like you could manuver there about with a sportbike.....but, I doubt you'd enjoy it all that much

I've read that these Triples are proving to be excellent long mileage motors

Me luckily:D

....and, btw, air-cooled twins are all pretty much long mileage motors. Especially those that have the jugs sticking out in wind:p.....Guzzi's & Beamers, baby.:dblthumb2:

I think the older Multistrada would make a fine ride as well.
