New TET bike (Help!!)

Post by jmrrosa » Sat Jan 05, 2019 12:39 pm

Hello guys,

I'm looking for a motorcycle to make the Portuguese TET (for now) and take some mostly off road trips, including trails, etc. I already have a R12GSA (2006) for the street and some light offroad so I wanted a smaller and lighter bike to really do some offroad. I've been looking for some honda bikes so far and I've had some interest in something like the Honda XR (400, 600, 650r). I have the budget somewhat reduced since it is a second bike and so I do not mind going for a bit older bikes.

What is your opinion?

Thank you! :handgestures-thumbup:

I think you would do well with a Honda XR.

I couldn't tell as I've never owned one but I would go for the 400 or 600 myself.

My bike is a very modified BMW g 650 XChallenge which I absolutely love. I want some decent power every now and then.
