POLL: Why did you buy an adventure bike… really?

Published: 13 November 2012

This year's Milan show has seen the release of a wide selection of adventure bikes, either updated or all-new models, from BMW, KTM, Aprilia, and Ducati among others.

No doubt some of these bikes do huge distances every year, exploring the world on every surface imaginable. But just as many of them never venture anywhere more dangerous than the M25!

So we ask: why did you buy an adventure bike… really? Was it to recreate the Paris-Dakar, follow in the footsteps of Magregor and Boorman... Or was it just to look like them?
