    I quit buying BMW's when they decided to make the oil cap need a specialty tool to add oil. Ugh.

    The same bike that says burning a quart of oil every 800 miles is "within spec".

    I'm happy you like yours.

    Thanks Cooter for the insight. Only borrowed a buddy's dirt bike. 400 4 stroke. That was fun. Even more fun when he said you have to go faster in deep sand. yea total noob on off road motorcycling. Almost got a ZERO DSR, but luckily I found the EBR first.

    One thing to think about is maintenance. The orange bikes USE to require oil changes at an hourly interval. Not sure about that now but a few years ago that took them out of my hunt. I have to ride to where I'm going to ride off road. 6,000 mile oil change sold me on my Xchallenge. Mind you it's not a single track beast (at least in my hands) but fire roads and street are cake. The x stock was 340# wet. Last time I weighed it with me and all my camping gear it was 600+! A lighter bike should handle better than a heaver on in the dirt but not as good on the road. Just like tires.
