Say what you want about them, but the Chinese-manufactured GY200 enduros are a very good bang for the ($1k) bucks. Yes, they need to be loctited everywhere to keep the bolts on, and are in dire need of a rear sprocket change (most are 56 teeth rear), unless you get one of the few that come stock with 46 t rears, but they can be mail-ordered off of Ebay, need minor assembly, and are ultra-cheap to register. On one group I belong to, one of the members rode his Lifan LF200GY-5 14 hours from Louisiana to Florida, and several members have 3000 + miles total (these are new bikes to the US after all). In fact, on the group, many members have other bikes that they let sit while riding around town on their GY200 for shopping and chores.
I am sure that people here will rip them apart, but I bet none of them have actually owned one, knew someone who owned one, or have seen one in person. IMO, a very good bang for the buck, although I would not go for an around the world on one, either.
