    Anyone else here ride both MT bikes and motorcycles

    I think it is ironic some of the comments I get some days when I goto a bicycle shop with a Harley shirt on, or talk to other motorcycle riders about riding a bicycle, but why is it so odd that someone would have a love for both types of riding? Or am I just odd?

    2 wheels is 2 wheels. I ride a Road King, a Suzuki DR350, a rigid singlespeed, a FS 69er, and a road bike. Nothing odd about it (at least in my book!!)

    I'm a hardcore motorcyclist (as well as MTBer)....

    ...but I can't stand Harleys! I think they're beautiful to look at...but sheer hell to ride—at least the kind of riding I love to do...which is carving super-twisty mountain roads at relatively high speeds.

    I ride a Suzuki V-Strom 650 now, and love it—it's the ultimate all-purpose bike since it's at home on dirt/gravel roads as well as pavement.

    I think if all you're gonna do is cruise on the interstate or just ride down the street to the local bar, a Harley is fine...but for performance riding...meh.

    I had a KLR 650 a few years back and loved it when I lived out in WV. I'd commute on it one day, and ride it in the National Forest the next. More recently I've been looking at the Kawi Versys (and maybe even the Vstrom) But that will be in about a year when my Harley is paid off.

    Oh man, I **worship** the KLR! I bought a 2006 new for $6K, put about $2K worth of mods into it, put 15K miles on it over a couple years (including a 5,000-mile, 3-week solo ride up to Newfoundland and back)...then sold it for $3K.

    Did I get $5K of enjoyment out of it? You bet. Do I regret selling it? Yep.

    The thing is, I bought the V-Strom a year after buying the KLR...and I found myself riding the V-Strom more and more, and the KLR less and less.

    Ironically, it was mountain biking that contributed to me selling the KLR. I originally bought the KLR thinking I'd do a lot of off-roading with it. And I did do some...but then I got into mountain biking, which of course completely satisfied my offroad craving.

    So the KLR just sat around...and I started thinking it was dumb to have two 650's...so decided to sell it.

    But I think KLRs are awesome bikes. The new models seem pretty solid too (mine was the previous generation).

    Scott

    PS - I've heard great things about the Versys, and the V-Strom 650 inspires fanatical devotion in those who have one...so you can't go wrong with either one (or a KLR!)

    My KLR was also an 06, I had it for about 2 years and it sat too much because I rode the Harley. One of my bad habits though is that I have like going fast, and one of the things I love about the mountain bike is it allows me to get my fix, and my exercise at the same time without having to worry about getting a ticket. I have found recently that I'm getting into riding the mt bike more and the Harley less even though I love the Harley...

    FYI, Hardcore and V-Strom don't belong in the same ballpark.
    You want to talk ultimate all purpose bike, go get yourself on a KTM 950 Adventure. I had an '04 for 6 years and that thing was at home in the mountain twisties, cruising at 80, or chasing (or being chased by) 400's through the woods.

    Looking forward to my annual trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway in VA and also tearing up some of those great twisty WV roads.

    A lot of guys I know who ride motorcycles also ride road and/or Mtb.

    I do admire the KTM950...but trust me—there's nothing the KTM can do on pavement that the Wee-Strom can't (after all, the Wee Strom has the legendary SV650 engine—one of the greatest V-twins ever made in history!)

    Offroad, heck yes—the KTM rules. But then again, I also learned on my KLR that riding rocky singletrack on a 400lb bike is a DRAG. The Wee-Strom handles dirt/gravel roads just fine, and for anything smaller/tighter/rougher, I'll take my mountain bike.

    And I'll take the maintenance and reliability of the Wee-Strom any day over a KTM. All I do is change the oil (which takes 5 minutes) and put gas in it, and the Wee is flawless for 10 years or 100K miles—whichever comes first!

    I think thats it.

    What do you do in the industry moto? We have a dealership (Yam, Kaw, and KTM). I love mtb and off road riding. I race Enduros on a KTM530 EXC, don't really get to ride as much as I want, on either bike.

    I love the little trailer for hauling the Mt. Bike. I've thought of doing that myself, only building the trailer deliberately light to minimize weight...

    just aesthetics, I liked the way it flowed with the bike.
    i thought it completed the exhaust instead of just a straight cut off pipe. its acually a turndown tip from a goldwing trike
    heres some more pics of the bike
    I cut off the rear spring mounts moved them back 2" to lower the rear, built rear fender mount and added a sportbike front fender, built taillight plate mount used a trailer light, chopped the rear frame built seat mount and used a seat i picked up at swap meet along with the scoop, mounted it and made it functional ram air, removed front fender, relocated the headlight to top triple, then striped the tank and fender, changed the bars risers and that about it




    here is what it looked like before

    Started riding on Christmas Day 1971. "Santa" brought me a Honda Mini Trail. I was 12. Fast forward 39 years and I'm still riding. I raced Moto cross in the 70's, Hare Scrambles in the 80's and started riding Observed Trials in 1986 and still compete. My first "car" was an XL 250 Honda street/trail bike. In 39 years of riding I've owned 32 bikes by 11 different marques.

    Started mtn biking in 1988. It was a natural extension of riding in the dirt. It's pretty sad that I have far more places to legally ride my mtn bike than my trials motorcycle.

    Dual Sports!!! Supermotos and Adventure Touring bikes make great tall guy bikes too.

    I've had many different bikes but my 2 favorites of all time are the F800GS and the R1200GS. I rented the 800 a couple years ago in Colorado and just traded a Rockster for the 12GS AND LOVE the bike. I ride a KX250 too for real dirt biking. I'd ride dirt bikes everyday if I could.

    Bikes are fun, with or without motors. Been riding pedal bikes since I was 3, dirt bikes since 30.

    Love two wheel fun... motorized or no...

    I have a 92 KLR 650 that I've put a small amount of work into. Bored it out to a 685cc monster and put a few upgrades (brakes and lines, fuel tank, instrument cluster, etc.). Love the bike, I commute on it every day.

    When I'm not riding my KLR, my riding my 2010 GT Avalanche. Alas... broke my chain yesterday powering up a hill, but I'll be back in business before the weekend.

    I began riding in 01'. Raced in CCS and WERA from 03-07. Did pretty good winning two national championships at the expert club level. I have unfortunately realized that not much of what I learned carries over to mountain biking

    I have worked at shops that sell Ducati, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, KTM, and Aprilia and had the chance to almost ride every model available at the time.

    Bikes I Owned:
    01 Kawi ZX6R
    04 Honda CBR1000RR (a pig but still my favorite bike I have ever raced)

    Sponsored owned race bikes:
    06 Yamaha R1
    07 Yamaha R1

    Hey I love RUSH big time,my first concert was Rush,Head East and Pat Travers on their Farewll to King's tour. I can listen to All the World's a Stage and never tire of it the energy is beyond anything 3 men have ever done and probably ever will, it is a real masterpiece and should go down in history as such!

    I love motorcycles and have one for every occasion but the bicycle is more refreshing in many way's, I just could not appreciate the Bicycle as well as a young man but age has refined me a little and gas at 5$ a gallon

    As a 6'7" motorcyclist, I'd be more than happy to give you my experiences if you want. A used BMW R1100GS or R1150GS would be up your alley if you're primarily focused on roads. Probably can get them somewhat cheap these days. Really good user community about servicing them yourself too, but BMW parts are never cheap. KLR650, DR650, XR650L and DRZ400 are good bikes if you're looking for something more offroad oriented (they're pretty much in order of most road biased towards least).

    I've got in the current stable, in addition to my three bicycles, a BMW G650XChallenge, FJR1300, and a Honda CB700 with a Velorex 562 sidecar hooked onto it.

    Just curious...what would something like that run? Around here I am seeing old Sporters from the 70's bobbed for $3000-4500. I was thinking something like that or maybe doing a metric build.

    that one would prob be about 15k to build again, lots of expensive parts, Baker Trans, TechCycle belt drive and trick shovelhead motor, sporty's would be much cheaper because they are cheaper to buy initially

    I've got a DR650 and a YZ250. Been riding dirt bikes since I was a kid. Just recently got into mtn biking as a way to build up endurance for dirt biking. Now I have a Specialized Hardrock Disk 29er. I ride the DR almost daily to and from work and the YZ almost every weekend. I'll be in utah this wknd riding the Piaute!

    I'd attach a pic but it only give me a url link to attach. Guess I can't attache from the computer?

    My cruise around bike is a Vmax, wife loves riding on it. She loves riding wheelies.

    Basically dirtbikeless, I intend to pick up a YZ450 in the spring.
