Planning to add a little off road adventure to your rides?

How can ya tell this is for offroad? The tires? They don't look as slick as the Harley's do.

Suspension on both ends is set up like an off road motorcycle. It sets up high off the ground like an off road motorcycle. At the same time it has mirrors and signals for on the road use. The tires too, tread somewhere between off road and street tire. A lot of time these bikes are called duel-sport or adventure bikes. No road is off limits to you. You can take it on the highway or turn down any dirt road or wide dirt trail. I wouldn't imagine this one being too fun on tight single track but a fire road would not pose a problem. The ideal use for this would be to take the highway/freeway to your favorite national park, then turn down the dirt road or fire road to a remote campsite few people see. I have considered one as a future bike but with the seat height being so high and my inseam being short I would have hell getting my feet to the ground.

Hey Danny....You can adjust the seat hight up and down using the pre-load adjuster on the rear shock, I raise and lower/soften mine all the time depending what wheight I carry.The shortest person I've seen riding one of these was probably about 5'
