I agree, it is one of a kind so is the rider who took it to Cape York.
My point is: dont let the category of your bike dictate where you go.
I was fortunate enough to spend a few years in south east Asia where the main personal transportation mode is 100-150cc bikes. Those things go everywhere. People there dont care about which bike is the best for riding two-up because most of them go three-up and more.
Riding through rush hour in HCMC (Saigon) is a true adventure.
It's not that i am living in a cave and dont understand what's the big deal about modern bikes. Hell, i own a 950s and a 690R because they are so much fun. But i dont think most of my rides are adventures because someone put an "Adventure" sticker on them.
