Here is a question for you, I have been riding a 650L for about a year, and it is a great bike. I ride about 14 miles a day, to and from work and then trail riding when I can. The question I have is that I read alot about people dual sporting 650R's and 450f's which are both very cool bikes, but you have to go through the trouble of getting them street legal. My question is, having never ridden either of the ladder bikes, how are they as far as a on road bike? I already know that they a great off road. Is the weight a big difference? Are they unpleasant to ride daily? I don't see to many posts from Illinois dual sporters, but is it a real pain to licence with the DMV here in IL?
