Apparently increasing the traction of 4 wheeled vehicles for a couple days is an Ok trade off for making the roads hazardous for 2 wheeled vehicles for a month or more.

Heck, I try to find gravel/dirt roads!

one word - dual sport...

two words - dual sport motorcycles...

screw it! - dual sport motorcycles are fun!
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
