I enjoyed my 310GS, but the Colonel is right, I could have done more to make it dirty. But the bent shock bolt was the defining factor. I’ve become addicted to dirt and deepend my distaste for tarmac. The Honda CRF 450rl is a plated dirt bike, not dual sport. Huge difference. I’ll always keep my low rider Van Van as it’s easy to ride and utilitarIan. Two different tools for different jobs. I‘m hoping to parlay my recent increase in bio power into lots of Desert travels practicing “Desert Minimalism” as taught by “Joe Motocross” on ADV rider.
I’ll have to remain a lurker here, too many great folks to hijack threads on.
Here’s my now all red garage. Had to put low rider in front as she’s just rid of the BMW and with a big Death Valley trip coming (no Honda) I can’t let her get all pissy.
