Most of my good mates are into trailbike riding, mostly forestry trails north of brisbane. I am not really that interested in doing hardcore dirt work. On the other hand, one particular laverda club member seems to often takes us offroad also, that part I dont mind. So I have decided its time to invest in something that is more capable of offroad use. The problem I have at the moment, is that I am not sure what path to go down. I do like the idea of adventure riding, its more my style. But I would also like to do some of the easier trails with my mates on weekends. I am going to go test ride a Tiger 800XC this afternoon. Other bike on the list of test rides is of course the BMW 800GS. Obvioulsy, test riding either is not going to tell me which is better offroad, but I have read plenty of reports on both. Any thoughts? Should I just go for a road trail for now? Get used to riding on the dirt first?
