I am about to get a bike and am having trouble deciding on a model. I'm looking for a earlier 90s four stroke which will be converted to dualsport. It will need to be able to handle a 20 mile or so ride to town or to the trails on a 60mph rural highway. I have mostly been considering an XR600. I have heard that they do fairly well on the highway. However, I am afraid that it will be a bit much off road. I am 6'1" and 190lbs. and will ride mostly jeep roads and logging trails. Would a smaller (400 or so) factory dualsport model be better on the highway and less of a handfull off road? Any comments would be very helpful!!
