small bikes

I get functionality and fun out of my DR200 all out of proportion to the money I spent on it. Small bikes rock!

Lois on the Loose had quite a blog posted on line before she decided to write a book about her journeys. I think she took it down so people would buy the book. She's got it exactly right...use just enough bike to get the job done, go light.

I've been fantasizing for a long time about going long-distance backroad and off-road touring on my DR200. Wish I had more time. My DR200 is also my daily driver. With some pannier racks now available from Happy Trails, it's going to be even more efficient.
