motard

stupid stuff to do to an xr650. I use to hate the pavement, but after about 10k miles from around town, commuting and the last trip to alaska i'm starting to get a nack for it. the big problem is deciding what kinda bike I want for the next trip.

options:
1-1.5)1100 or 1150gs BMW
2) some street bike
3) convert the xr650L to more street worthness and leave it sit where it stops in alaska

people thought I was stupid with option #3 but given my desire to reamain not poor #3 is looking more and more interseting. i'm sure the riders I go with would dis own me... that could be a problem if the bike does stop.

ya #3 would be such a bad idea except i don't really want to squish both of us onto my bike in case yours does stop... but if it doesn't stop you can ride whatever you want!
option #1.75 get a bmw 650 dakar...

Personally I would recommand taking a serious look at a specialized s-works full dura-ace bike.
