cuz my parents still want some sway in my life and they want me buying a new bike.
Hmmmm changes things- biggest advantage with new is ABS...most ADV bikes don't have it.
This looks like your best bet for fit and durability.
The 2023 Honda CRF300L Rally Dual Sport Motorcycle offers the best of both worlds – on-road confidence and off-road dominance.
Big enough for you just under 35" seat height.
Pretty much bullet proof
Cheap on gas ...I get 300 km on $10 worth of fuel.
It's the bike I would have replaced my KLR650 with if I had the coin.
Noraly moved to it last year after she broke her 250 in a S African rally.
The other one is the BMW 310GS 33.5 Seat height.
Maybe a bit more comfortable if it fits you and more street oriented. I took one out for an afternoon and enjoyed it. Would opt for it here $ permitting. Off pavement capable with more street comfort. Might be a bit quicker than the Honda and has ABS
...my son cannot ride any more due to illness and might have some good gear for you. PM me if interested.
For fit reference for a bike for you - that's a KLR650 with a 35"seat height. He's 6'
Quite a while ago...was a stretch for me to ride with a 30" inseam but had lots of sag,
