I intend to use mine offroad, much as I did my XT600 (though I still have the old Yamaha, so maybe we'll save the bad trails for that).
I haven't yet had time to play offroad, like my buddy. But judging by his experience, I got the package best suited to my needs, the most versatile bike that I could find in my price range. I don't think I'd get much more useful function, durability or reliability if I spent twice the money on a BMW.
I do note, however, that a lot of those V-stroms pictured in the dirt seem to be wearing tires a bit more gnarly than the Trailwings that came with mine.
Private vehicles, guns and home schooling make the collectivists uneasy. They grant to the individual a degree of independence of action which terrifies the champions of the super state. They do not wish you freedom to move around, to protect yourself, to decide what your children should be taught. Such things reduce the power of the state over the citizen.
