I think I’ve been bitten by the dual sport motorcycle bug by accident! I’ve got a Polaris Sportsman 500 ATV and Ranger 900 UTV and my son has a little Polaris 50. We ride together a lot! My wife recently wanted something of her own to ride and said she wanted a dirt bike. She used to ride a Harley Sportster. I thought since we ride a lot of gravel roads, that maybe a dual sport bike would be a good option for her so I went on the hunt. I found her a super clean 1989 KLR250 and bought it. Brought it home and quickly found that she couldn’t even close to touch the ground when on the bike. She’s 5’2” and short-legged! And it was kick start only which she obviously couldn’t do. So I cleaned it up and flipped it for a nice little profit, but rode it around myself for a while and really enjoyed myself. I went back on the hunt for something smaller for her and found an even cleaner 2000 Yamaha TW200 and bought it. She can touch with the balls of her feet and agreed that it’s a keeper. At first I thought it was a little silly for me to ride, being 6’1” and 215lbs. But I have to admit that I’m crazy about that little bike now! I love to ride it! It weighs nothing hardly and just so dang fun to ride! I got it licensed and have ridden on the paved roads some. It cruises easily at 45mph. Now I’ve got the bug and have really been thinking about selling a few guns and buying myself a dual sport bike, something that’s still crazy fun to ride, but something that can handle 55-60mph without feeling like I’m flogging it. Anyone else ride dual sports here?
