VOL. 55 ISSUE 47 NOVEMBER 27, 2018 P73 dual sport Beta's 430 RR-S, 450 D ual sport has changed. Once ruled by relatively inexpensive and softer- performing versions of dirt bike's elite motocross and off-road racehorses, the dual-purpose bikes of the past were a fringe of off-road premium, not the mainstream of price or the tip-of-the-spear of performance we have today. For the way most people want to, or will, use a dual sport bike, the now aging street-legal performers of DR-Z, KLR, CRF, XR, XT of all displacements are per- fectly fine. They go off-road just fine. They go on-road just fine. They are insanely dependable and durable, and you'll tire of them before they tire out. They're fine. Everything is fine. Like a marriage. It's fine.
