I currently own a Moto Guzzi California 1400 Custom, which I've put bags on and am using as a road touring bike. Have done a couple of big trips on it out to California to ride the Pacific Coast Highway, as well as Route 66 from Chicago to LA.
I have a few trips in mind that may involve a few off-road sections here and there, hence my interest in adventure bikes. Why the AT specifically? A few reasons, but number one is that I like the idea of the DCT, especially for off road riding and commuting.
I also have a Honda CRF250L that I mainly use for commuting, but I'll probably trade that in when I get the AT.
