RC8 dirt bike...

So, since I don't ride my RC8 much on the street, I was thinking of converting it to a decent dual sport bike, like the New Adventure bike Walter has been gaga about with the same engine. Think this would be an expensive conversion? A Hundred sixty HP dirt bike? The only problem would be the two radial brembos up front. Way too much street brake for a dirt bike!

Not yet. Funny you mention it....looks like our training on the 18-20 is going to be cancelled---so me an Starchamp are going to run it.

Wanna come? Can't believe you brought it up--we were just settling on it today. We'll know Tuesday.

I do want to go, but I will need to adjust my work schedule. I will check to see if I can go.

Big bikes or little?

He's on a DRZ400 and I'm on the DR650. Just in case--but it's likely an easy ride on those bikes.

I think the 950SE would be good to go IMO.
