One is a project manager, one is a programmer, and another is a HVAC specialist. They ride like old people grocery shop. That is pretty much the way I've seen most enduro riders act. And none of them have ever put their bike on dirt that I know of.
I see a lot of folks commuting on dual-sports these days. There aren't many Standard street bike choices in the sub-650 class, so if you want a 250, it's just another option out there.
