I agree with you Oldbeer, having had an ‘adventure’ over the Moleswroth on my Bandit with road tyres, in my leathers etc- I had no idea back then about adventure bikes, I just knew I wanted to get off the beaten track somehow and it was fantastic. A chance meeting with a tourist on the road led me to buy her Yamaha XT250 as she was leaving NZ and it was a great lightweight start to gravel and off road, easy to pick up handle. I’d recommend the lightweight to start with and keep trading in to match ability. Good luck Brook and keep us posted
