Like the idea of a good touring bike that can wander down gravel roads
like Molesworth / Dansys pass etc..
most lightly going to be a Honda NC700 "this week"
The specs between the "S" & "X" versions is almost the same
Other than the "X" being 40mm taller seat & 25mm more ground clearance
over the "S" road version... prob the "S" with a set of 705s would be just
as good on gravel...

NC700X ===>

NC700S ===>

just need a buyer for the XR250... don't need 3 bikes to reg....

if you get to ride a 700 let me know what you think
I'm glad I'm not the only one with these difficult problems

So road bike= Naaaaaa.
great minds think alike huh

or is it fools seldom differ......

At this point the shop keeper kicks him fair up the arse.
