It sounds like independent body armor is the way to go. I'm thinking of something like the AXO Aircage or the Leatt 3df on top. I'm also planning on knee pads and padded shorts like the Klim tactical...

Noobie question: body armor vs protective gear?

I recently finished the MSF course and am going to buy a friends Yamaha WR250R. I plan to ride dirt roads and "easy jeep trails" with about about 20-40% of my time spent getting to and from the dirt...

The voices of reason have spoken louder then the calls for adventure. I'll cool my jets for awhile, buy my friends Yamaha WR250R and get some miles under my belt before planning a multiday ride....

I'm really appreciating all the advice and recommendations. I hadn't thought about taking my Camelback but I can see where that would be helpful. I also hadn't thought about doing an oil change along...

I appreciate the words of encouragement and of caution. I definitely plan to travel light and take it easy staying at motels along the way. I plan on packing no more then I can put in a carry on bag...

Would this be crazy for a noobie?

I'm thinking about doing a "fly and ride" from Salem, OR to Tucson, AZ about a month from now. The plan is to take an MSF class next weekend, practice riding a friends Yamaha TR250R for a few weeks...

Has anyone purchased the Husqvarna top case or panniers? Or do you guys think it would be better to go with a different brand?

Thanks for the input. The Terra makes sense to me in many ways. I'm intrigued that they're made in Italy. I know guys who have spent more then 7 grand for an Italian road bicycle.

I'm getting the bug to get a dual-sport bike and get into adventure riding. Of course I'm going to take an MSF class and something like the Rawhyde Adventure off-road class first. I'm a lanky 6'1"...

I appreciate the continued feedback. $9000 for the 2011 F600GS is out the door. Even at $9,900 for a 2013 F700GS I'll be looking at another grand in tax plus fees, documentation and destination...

I'm still pondering my choices. A local dealer has a new 2012 KLR650 marked down to $5000. I'd still be getting a longer warrantee with the 2011 F650GS. I see my self doing some 2-3 day tours so...
