    small run around with an ability to do light off road

    So looking for a small run around (500cc max) that will do a bit of light off road . I want something I can pick up on my own( just in case)now getting on a bit.

    My choice has come down to a GS310 or Honda CB500X. Both have Rally raid kits available for about £2000ish

    Opinions?

    Thanks...….Den

    Go for a 250-350. If you're worried about picking it up, it'll probably be happening more than once.

    How about a CCM450 GP Adventure? There is one on sale here somewhere.

    Whilst the CCM option is good, it is a bit niche - lets hope they think about using either the 310 or 650 motor in a new version.
    I am drawn to the RR 310.
