    Looking for a bike

    What are your thoughts on honda dual sports? I am in the market and have not had time to research the Honda versions....Is the 650 the only dual sport they offer, I am 5'1 and 95 lbs so a 650 is a bit to tall for me.

    Yes, in the States, the 650 is the only dual sport in the current line-up. I was going to suggest an XR400 and a Baja Designs street kit, but even the 400 is going to be bit tall for you unless you lowered it.

    Re: Looking for a bike

    What do you mean by dual sport? If you're talking a dirtbike with an OEM headlight from the factory, then the 650L is the only Honda like that.
    However, you can get lighting kits for other Honda models faily inexpensively.
    The CRF line is full of choices that would suit you. The 450R and 250R models are hardcore motocrossers, but the X versions of the same are not.

    Yeah, I was just thinking CRF250X with a Baja Designs kit. They're all going to be tall for you, but at least the 250X is pretty light.

    I gotta think Alabama is pretty liberal in their licensing....

    Never use the L word when referring to my sheepfold

    Yep honda really needs a dual purpose 250 Yamaha has a decent dual sport in the XT225. Not to tall and doesn't have the fat tires of a TW200

    The TW is not a bad bike at all if you are going to trail ride it. The tires do well on sand at slow to medium speeds.

    Let's see. To get a motorcycle license if you already have a driver's license, it takes a grueling 25 question test and $20.

    To register a 4 wheeled vehicle, it must have windshield wipers but it not required to have a windshield.

    And those are just examples.

    And you can get all 25 questions wrong. And that is lax and less government not the L word

    Dirt bikes are great for seeing the flowers ... and with the savings in gas money, can buy lots of jewelry. Sounds pretty logical to me.
