put longer forks and better rear shocks on your t140 and test
i have a 750 flattracker its great at dirttrack no bumps or jumps
its modern so should give no trouble just like the ducati 1100 scrambler

Same as the Ducati scrambler, its a saturday morning retro coffee getter but only if your wearing the right gear ;)

Tiger is a way better machine for adventure.

Not this time around Pokey, Google the spec's. This has bigger legs more balls and a lot of nice bits added. jimson

Dunno Buddy. XE is the pick but Tanks too small for a decent ride. Heavy twin pipes and that front guard is just asking to be recycled. Not that good as an adventure bike as those pipes would fry your luggage. Its a day rider for open trails by the looks of her. Any of those issues could be changed but why not get the bike you want in the first place? 

 The 900 engine street twin isnt bad on fuel with its FI but I dare say the 1200 and being warmed over  and lugging 206KG would suck that 15.9 litre tank in pretty quick. If it did more than 250K of highway stuff I would be very impressed. Looks cool and retro though.
