Looking for a Multi-Purpose Ride
I'm hoping the community here might be able to offer some advice. I've only been riding dirt for a little while now, but I'm thinking that with my schedule difficulties and whatnot, something street legal and multi-purpose might be a better fit for me than the 125 2-stroke I've been riding. What am I hoping is that I'll be able to find something that works decently well for some street riding, some trail riding (probably nothing too crazy), and just maybe a little track time. So I was thinking that if I could get a supermoto-type bike, that could work pretty well. I was thinking that something with high displacement, but still reasonably lightweight, something that I can get multiple types of tires for, etc.
I would like something street legal that I can keep reasonable dual sport tires on most of the time so that I'm able to hop on and ride the highway an hour or so to be able to ride trails. Preferably I'd like to also be able to throw real knobby tires on for more purposeful dirt riding as well as real street tires on for a little bit of supermoto-style track stuff.
So, I'm curious, for this purpose, what y'all think of an early 2000s KTM LC4 640 Adventure. Thoughts?
