Should you ride a Dual Sport or an ADV bike? It is not so simple to just pick one or the other. What you intend to do on that bike will ultimately decide what bike is right for you or right for todays ride.
Both classes of bike come in many shapes and sizes. Some of the Dual Sports have adventure in the name depending on how you separate the two classes. It is not so simple to split them down a clear line either as the lines blur slightly. For example, if you decide that you are going to determine that ADV bikes must be more than one cylinder the BMW 300GS falls out of the ADV class, but one look at the bike tells you it is not a traditional Dual Sport model either. In this podcast we discuss the differences of these two classes and why you might choose one over the other.
