Good on you. This is my next bike!
In Europe they call a variant the Varadero 125. I am a believer that this is the way to go. Cheap to buy, run and abandon when things go wrong.
People go agog when I say small is better. I just sold my F650GS Dakar the day after finishing the the Trans Lab; just a couple of days ago. The Dakar was flawless, but what is the point of 100kph 'adventuring'?
I am quite disappointed at all the 'up-sizing' of adventure bikes these days. Fabricating 'need' and creating envy to feed a consumerist agenda. Ever take note of Ewan McGregor's tears and sweat for picking up his 1200GS (over and over again) or the fact that the cameraman had much more fun on his tiny Russian bike? Note to self....
