I really like the looks of the TU250, but I've never ridden before. Could you swap tires and stuff to make it drivable off road if you wanted? Like some of the stuff seen in this thread : http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...01349&page=101

Or am I best to stick with a dualsport?
Yeah...Dual-Sport it is for you. Simply for the suspension & clearance. The TU-250X is a little showboat/around town standard bike. Nothing more. I guess you could slap some different tires etc., but it's not really made for that IMHO. BTW...Years ago (1990) I owned a Yamaha TW200 & had a blast riding that bike! Not really a street rig as it would top-off @ 55mph, but just ate-up the offroad!
