can anyone recommend a decent touring/"enduro" bike for road trips in the mountains? I want something reasonably comfortable for riding 3 hrs at a time, but that won't get me overly anxious when I go over fire trails and Buttermilk Road.

I was thinking bmw F 650 might do the trick

If you are shopping for an 'enduro type bike' Hang out here: advrider.com In fact, find your 'local' sub-forum and you'll likely find some friendly motoheads that'll help hook you up with a nice bike and/or test rides etc.

WERA 1983-85 (?) Started on VF750 and then discovered 'the smell of castor oil in the morning' and ran an MT125RII for a while. Was never fast but was slow, mostly. But sure had fun... still brings a smile to my face :-))

May as well post a pic of my 650 V-Strom. I got rid of it to get rid of speed, thinking I might last longer - went back to a KLR 650. I posted my DRZ400S already. That's Boundry Peak in the background.

I sold the Beemer mentioned on the first page about two years ago to a business associate that is a collector as a basket case for about three times what i originally paid for it.

He got it back into this shape, no new paint, lots of re-chromeing though.

At a show he was made an offer he couldn't refuse and my old ride now resides here.

Not part of the displayed collection yet as far as I can tell.

You know you are old when your Bike is in a museum collection!
