If you are going to be a road rider that occasionally saunters down a dirt road you'll manage.
Thanks. I think that's my most likely niche. The worst roads I would anticipate riding would be the Dempster Highway (Dawson YK - Inuvik NT) and the Liard Highway (Fort Nelson BC - Fort Simpson NT). Near here, the ghost town trail is probably the worst I'd see, and I gather much of it isn't too bad at all.
We're just finishing the purchase of a house, so once all the dust settles and we see what the monthly budget ends up looking like....
