I was asked how often I would be going off road and the salesman said to be honest so I said 20% tops.So he directed me towards the V-Strom.There was a Ducati and a KTM on the floor as well.I really wanted the KTM and I was told it was a more serious off road bike and the Ducati was more for on road.Ive owned a cr500 and a KTM 550 mxc and these are serious off road bikes.I never thought the v strom was in the same category.I bought mine for fire and forest roads and it does these perfectly for me.Very comfortable on highway too.I wouldn’t want it any higher to make it more difficult to mount on a hillside.I believe for me the V-Strom is perfect for mild off road use.Its pretty heavy for serious off road use or hill climbing.The V-Strom is the perfect blend.
