“You know, coming into the adventure world, small bikes are fun, but they have a lot of suspension travel, they’re light, you can throw them around on the dirt...you can tumble down hills with them and drag them back up the hill. You don’t do that very well with an adventure bike and the biggest difference, the number one difference between an adventure bike and these small dual sports or dirt bikes is they don’t crash like a dirt bike.” - Bret Tkacs
