    I just bought a 1994 KLR 650! Looking forward to some good rides.

    That's beautiful.

    I think I want something more modern than the DRZs if I am going to buy new. Also the lower seat height is a plus since I'm 5'7" only. I know the stock 310GS doesn't offer much for the dirt but the rally raid kit seems legit and I saw 2 fully kitted ones sell used for ~$6k which seems like a good bargain. I have been scouring craigslist for used DRZs, WR250Rs and really any of the dual sports out there. On top of the bike, I still have to buy all the safety gear so I'm lookin' at quite a bit of cash to get into this adventure. Trying to be patient and wait for good deals.

    Leaning towards the BMW G310GS now. Hoping to find one with the Rally Raid kit.

    I should have known. It was just marketing. The dealer had fees to back it up. They ended up still offering a great deal, but not the deal I was ready to take. Back to the hunt...

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I found a great deal on a new 2018 Honda CRF250L Rally for $3,885 and I am actually going now to pick it up! I can't wait to get it dirty.
  7. Hey all, I am just getting into dual-sport riding. I have been learning as much as I can from articles and YouTube about where to get started and which bikes to try. I haven't ridden in about 10 years. I just got this bug to get back on the road, out of town and in the dirt and there's no shaking it! I plan to get a bike, something small like a CRF250L or WR250R, pack it up with some camping essentials, and head out for a weekend of trail riding with some friends. I joined this forum to meet other riders in San Diego who are getting out there and try to learn as much as I can from them and make some new friends. Hope to see you on the trails! - NIck
