I really am spoiled to live right in the middle of so many great places to ride. I just wish I had realized how fun it is years ago and started riding off-road sooner!!

Yes, save for that 525 exc ... you won't regret it. My boyfriend just finally got the 625 SXC and he is like a little kid with a new toy - I love it. He had a DR650 forever and now finally has his KTM. I just started riding off-road so I am sticking with the DR200 until I am really comfortable and then I'll decide if I need to upgrade or not. Our dream is to get adventure bikes and do an Alaskan trip someday - that won't be for a few years though.

Have you ever ridden a BMW GS series bike?

The reason I ask is that I have really been considering getting one but would like to hear from someone who has actually owned one.

My son and I have been into bikes since he was 5. He?s now 21.
I started him on a 50

He then moved up to a Big wheel 80 it?s here with my venture

You can see my old 1972 Kaw 175 on the trailer

We would ride in the side car rig from time to time

I got him an xr100 when he was too big for the 80

Then I found a sweet deal on a DR350 for me and a year later a CRF230 for him



Here he is with all his current toys

I ride an 1150 Gs

I use it mainly on dirt roads and street it will cruise at 120mph with out breaking a sweat it is a great road bike and does great on mildly rough terrain. The 1200gs shaved off some weight but for dirt I'd go 800GS or the 650GS as they are much lighter. My next dual sport for dirt will be a KTM540 EXC or possibly a Husky

Love seeing the pics of everyone else's toys. My little DR doesn't compare but even though it is little, I can make it move and I have lots of fun on it.
