wish list to try out someday as off-road capable and not feeling lacking on the road.
Tenere 700 looks like they nailed it, being +400lbs and narrow seat aside (Fortnine's review holds some sway with me as well
GS800f (again, heavy, but it's legacy speaks for itself)
XT250, fuel injected, air cooled simplicity/less to go wrong out there, light weight. less so for road prowess, but superior ion the trail.
wr250r: true, do all machine, if you are looking at serious trails and all day road capable. Would want to build a seat out for all day comfort, will only let you down if you are at 75+ all day long as you are on the end limits of speed (especially with my rear being geared at 36 teeth). I would be content with this bike if it weren't so expensive to get sm wheels.
XT225, loved this bike, low seat, light weight, great gear box. Were i to travel all over the world solo, i'd take this bike, no doubt about it. So simple to work on, 1qt oil changes, excellent power, just have to avoid going 60+ for more than 30min, for 250lb me at least (bike would get hotter than i really want)
DRZ400s with 17" super moto wheels, putting 50/50 tires on it (shinko 244 or 700's), great clutch, could use a wider gearbox (exists, but it costs you $ and serious engine work), modding a duke 690 seat onto it. Light weight, clearance, good power. Likely will be a true 50/50 machine, will report as i get to put it through the paces.
KTM duke 690, doing some work, mainly rerouting the exhaust for more ground clearance, armor the bottom, play with the power dial, getting a larger rear sprocket to make it better in tight work and more dirt/gravel capable tires (k73's), even after all that, it will still be more road oriented, but will put it through the paces and report.
