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. 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.
