off-roading with K75

I have a 1994 K75 that I have been riding for over a year now. I keep hearing from my buddies how much fun it is to get off the beaten path and see more of Mother Nature. I have never ridden on gravel or dirt roads so not sure how I need to change my set up to accommodate. Do I need knobby tires, under carriage protection, etc. do I need to take off our raise the front fender?

thanks

rob

The Duck has the right idea! And do a little reading on line or youtube as to proper dirt techniques. Power in the corners kick the back out some is a fun start. But, you have to know, dirt riding does lead to crashes, so be prepaired. Smooth gravel roads are a good start. After a few miles build some confidence and pick up the speed as the bike works better "floating" over the gravel. I'm not really one to give dirt advice so read as much as possible and to go out there. Pretty soon you will need to find a used Suzuki DR 650 to enjoy the fun of back roads. Cheap and parts are cheap. Easy to work on and solid as a rock.

Best Doctor's check this out lists have proven to be nothing more than ads. They have little value in helping you find the right doctor for you and your family. A doctor's ranking should consist of several other aspects as part of the whole doctor's experience.
