hello
i am recently looking for a bike that i will use daily for 40 miles general road commuting on weekends maybe some dirt, for the dirt i will be having differenet set of wheels.

i found these 2 mostly i like

honda dominator nx650 model 1999


or yamaha ttr600e model 2000

but those bikes are in different category how well are they on the road when converted to sumo? anyone can help out
i am leaning to the dominator as its more road than dirt unlike the ttr which was made for dirt. i am pretty sure both will handle most roads well but i am sure there is a differnece.
which is better wat do u think ?

I'd go for the dommie, as it's more of an allrounder. TTR is pretty hardcore already, great for a day of fun but for commuting in all weather I'd like something a bit more gentle.

Another thing, I think the TTR doesn't have the rubber cush drive thing in the rear wheel, which is a lot harder on the mechanical bits with mainly road use.
