Dave McReynolds Posted November 15, 2007 Share Posted November 15, 2007 My friend with whom I climb and hike from time to time has noticed that sometimes I leave my motorcycle at the end of a trail so I can loop back to my car. In my case, it's an excuse to combine my two favorite hobbies. Of course, in my case, you don't load a K1200GT on the back of a Hundai, so I ride home in grand style, while Nancy pilots the Hundai (happily). But my friend sees the advantage in this arrangement, and would like to get some kind of motorcycle to leave at trailheads. Since he isn't really a motorcyclist, his main motivation is getting from the trailhead back to his pickup, and then loading the motorcycle into his pickup for the trip home. I've mentioned to him that motorcycling is not something you casually do like you might try flyfishing to see if you like it or not, but these cautions sort of bounce off someone who hangs off mountains for fun. I have no experience in the kind of bikes he might want. I assume he wants something that would work on dirt or pavement, would be cheap, and would load into a pickup truck. Any ideas as to what I should recommend to him? Link to comment
