So, I'm tired of these bullshit gas prices and want something really fuel efficient. But I like to have fun too. In my mind, the reasonable middle is a motorcycle. I have done some research, and basically decided a dual sport would be the best option for me. Obviously I have pavement driving for commuting, but I drive on a lot of gravel too. Plus, there is the enduro aspect, which appeals to me.
I have pretty much zero experience
on a motorcycle, so I'm thinking a 250. I'm not gonna buy anything until next spring, as I wouldn't use it over the winter anyway. I'm planning on taking all the classes and stuff too. Going to buy used for sure. I have lots of friends that know tons about bikes, so I'll take them when I go to buy.
I'm just looking for suggestions on good 250 dual sports. The fastest I will be going on road is 70ish on the freeway, so if like something that will do 75 without much problem. Other than that, I'm open to suggestions.
