Lightweight, barely road legal bikes capable of travelling far and off the beaten track. Post any pics but better yet post your own.

Most probably a 525 EXC that was pimped for adventure rides.

Makes sense to use plastic bikes for adv duty in the US.

1. They are cheap
2. Parts are cheap
3. Everything is better in the US :P

Ah man this sums it up for me perfectly!! A light bike with a massive fuel tank, easy to work on and can go anywhere with a decent range. I seriously love the idea of small bike touring, why would you want to go fast anyway, you miss all the scenery then.

Dis nou weer daai Yanks vir jou.  Daar is seker 'n Café Laté masjien,  cable TV, warm kombers, 6 maande se Twinkies, 2 TV remotes, 'n Weber "barbeque", 12 ground beef patties, 'n bergfiets met heart rate monitor en 24 Budweisers in daai klein sleepwaentjie.  Hulle glo mos in die Wild Outdoors en roughing it  :biggrin:
