Here's my three adventure bikes.

The first is great on gravel despite the small wheels and it's surprisingly good with a passenger too. It is a struggle in gnarly trails but will surprise most.

The second pic is my current tough ride adventure bike. It does everything and with that 20 litre tank; gets 400km in a fill.

Pic 3 is great if you have a million miles to ride before the going gets tough but struggles on anything really rough.

There\s no such thing as the perfect bike; you gotta have three!

NOT a touring bike... It's a 1200 MegaMoto- Strictly geared and set up for fast backroads VS highways... There are a few owners who have "toured" with them, but I can't see it... That's what a GS is for...

It's more of a touring bike then my FZ6 is.
Just sayin.

I know what the purpose of the MegaMoto is..
