Is this a workable dynamic? A microadventure bike is a welcome alternative to putting your significant other on your passenger seat.
It’s always a weird mix. Every adventure bike get-together looks like someone dropped a bunch of random motorcycles into a duffel bag,
shook them up and then tossed them all over a mountainside. There
are street bikes, dual-sport bikes, old bikes, new bikes, and on and on.
Usually, the only common elements are license tags and riders who
aren’t afraid of the dirt. So, we started wondering, is size an essential
part of the adventure bike formula? One thing led to another, and the
eventual result was a Suzuki DR200SE built for the long haul. We wanted
to answer three questions: Can such a small bike ;t into a group of bigger machines without weighing the whole ride down? Is this a better
alternative to carrying your spouse on the rear seat of a big bike? And,
is the Suzuki DR200SE the right bike for micro adventuring?
