More fun than you can shake a stick at, riding in "Plate Only" areas in the open desert .. No fun on the road, as all it does is try to get your license taken away and you thrown in jail.. (especially here in California) ever try to ride a 550CC Ported 2 stroke at 30mph city speeds?!
I have always said people need more than one dualsport.
You need your
990 / GS size for 98% pave, and the occasional jaunt down nice dirt
need your 640 KTM adventure
need your Plated Kx500
and a Plated XR200 (In my case a XR100)
if the KTM is going to be your only dualsport and you use it for more than jsut connecting dirt... you will hate life. go buy a 570 Berg
