Buell???

No - we have to draw the line somewhere - I can use a Gold Wing on gravel too, but its not a d/s bike.  At least a 19inch front wheel?

The Buell does not meet the base criteria as established by Admin
but for what it's worth, I think it should be included too

Alrighty then! I'm expecting the same response on advriders.com (check the massive dr650 thread) when Suzi "upgrade" the dr650. The current design is about  12 years old. It's cheap, simple and extremely capable for a ds bike.

I think okes like the old klr and dr because they're cheap and easy to upgrade - oops sorry CHANGE - and to work on.

Next time, I'll choose my words more carefully! :-*

Ta da...  me again...

(timidly, he asks..) Whattaboutmy F650 - it's NOT a GS or a Dakota.

Heck, the wheels are not interchangeable, so it must be different, and it can go up Matabeng and Sani and The Hell, so it must be a D/S

(sniff..)
Old, grey, crafty...

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

Vergelyk die volgende 2 Motorfietse vanuit die vervaardigers se oogpunt!

Vervaardigers se oogpunt se vir ons min.  Ons is besig om 'n lys van d/s bikes op te stel wat voldoen aan die minimum spesifikasies gestel deur onsself, en wat ons as d/s ryers beskou as d/s bikes.  D/S bikes per definisie is 'n bree area - 'n klein trail bike kan ook as 'n d/s bike gesien word in ons opinie.

So met respek gese, f die vervaardigers en ander padbike tydskrifte se kategoriee, ek reken ons kan 'n beter lys opstel - dis in elk geval slegs vir ons gebruik en sal deurgaans aangepas word.  Die  verskil tussen 'n avontuur, d/s, d/p en trail bike bestaan meestal net in mense se koppe.

When is the updated list going to be made available under the Profile section?

I am sure all those dogs that cannot find their pride and joy on the list will be ecstatic and grateful to see their ride listed
