Bruce's Motorcycle Page
We are now in ADV mode and that means Adventure. The road
less traveled is preferred because we can go places most
people never even think about. We see a lot more of God's
beauty than the those that just zoom up and down the
interstate. We go to places you would not believe and
getting there is called Adventure Riding or ADV for short.
In order to do this you need a special kind of motorcycle
called a Dual Sport bike. A dual sport bike has more
clearance to be able to travel secondary roads and is
usually a little lighter than the big cruisers. Dual sport
bikes have tires that work well on pavement and gravel and
dirt, no racing slicks will work. After some research I
decided that the BMW F650GS was just right for me as it is
just a little lighter than the big GS and still does a great
job on the highway and gravel-dirt roads. This is a medium
weight dual sport bike with a 2 cylinder fuel injected 800cc
engine, 6 speed transmission, ABS braking and full computer
readout display and gets easily over 50 miles per gallon.
