Hey everyone I am new to the Forum and to these style bikes. I have owned a YZ125 and a Suzuki marauder 800. I am interested in getting a duel-sport/endro/adventure bike. with my limited knowledge I really not sure what the difference in the three. but I like to ride and get outdoors but I need something that could be a daily ride to work and easy enough to travel with a RV.

dual sports and enduros are quite similar, both based on MX, dual sports can and usualyl are more road focused then a pure enduro... ADV's are their own breed...

Whats great aboutt he AT, is Honda based it off the CRF... so you get the skinnyness of the DS/MX/Enduro, but the power and size of a larger ADV...

Thanks @Nessuno ! That is pretty much what I am picking up. I am not scaredof the power but I am concerned with the size and weight of the bike for controllability.I stand at a whopping 5'7" 180lbs and I like to ride bikes and not feellike they are riding me.

Hi, just wondering what your inseam is? Overall stature may not be as important as inseam. If you can ride a YZ125 I think you will be fine.

Inseam is like a 30-32ish! (it was so hard not to respond in poor taste):0 It is more the weight that I am thinking of that I may not be able to throw it around like I could the YZ125.
