Can't agree more. My Dakar is great. But it won't do everything. How many bikes we need to have to cover the spectrum of possibilities? With the right choices, I'd I say at least 3. And also agree with the fuel injection. Can't beat that - and it is smooth at it, BTW.

When we went down Kane Creek the KTM took the road into Moab. I would have done the same on the Dakar. Moral of the story. Want to ride a street bike on dirt bike trails and cry??? Just take the dirt bike out. Seams easy to me. Keep up the posts, I am learning a lot.
