I went out last year with a few guys - experienced riders/enduro racers. (On KTMs and a Husky.) And one more - a guy that just bought a CRF230L after 25 years of being off bikes. And street bikes nonetheless. We convinced him to come with us. We new the bike would make it and this guy had enough character that we knew he would make it too. A few hours later we came out of the bush. He was the slow one but he went everywhere we did. Just as we expected.
Scooters have done RTW trips, ninja 250s rip up roads in a bunch of countries and 13 Hp dirt bikes bring people up mountains across the Rockies and the Andes.
It's never about the bike.
