    Including this? It does have bags.

    Spotted at a "Race The Runway" event near Ottawa.

    Riding that bike (anywhere) might be an adventure but...
    (suspension travel might be a bit short for off-road!)

    Some friends of mine put TKC-80 tires on their Yamaha FJRs and did the Trans Lab a few years ago...

    Some of my best adventures have been on inappropriate machinery. Delivering a 30year old SP500 over 1300km and coming back on an ugly scooter that was purchased sight unseen was my best ride ever.

    My first Adventure came at the age of 16 when my buddy Dave and I rode our 125 Enduros “all the way” to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and back in one day(!) My Kawasaki two-stroke was much quicker than Dave’s Honda, but did have a bad habit of fouling the spark plug at steady highway speeds, requiring roadside pit stops and scorched fingers as I swapped it out.

    My choice of conveyance has certainly improved over the years, but the truth is, it doesn’t matter what you ride.
    Take it someplace you haven’t been before, and call it an Adventure! :cool:

    We'll see if I make it that far in Sept, I may bug out in Montreal.

    Shooting to hit CroMag and the R65 LS 40th anniversary rallies 2 weekends in a row.
