Wrote a nice column in Cycle World's Travel and Adventure (on the newsstand now) about this very problem. But to throw fuel on the fire, what about the Luxury Rally Twin Cylinder Mid-Displacement class?
Throw a set of Michelin Anakee 3 tires on that mid weight bike along with a skidplate and you have a bike that is more capable than most people use their dirt bikes for.
