I'd take a DR650 on a world journey.
Most of the world is dirt, speeds are 45 mph & people ride cheap & simple 125cc bikes.
Americans are just ignorant of these facts because they have credit to buy beyond their means.

would you rather take a 30 year old Oilhead or Airhead on a round the world journey???
