It's no motocross bike, and if you're jumping off 6 foot escarpments then it is the wrong machine. That said, the V-Strom (both flavors) are capable of going far more places than a lot of riders give them credit for. Not everything is either a paved road or a trials course. Funny thing is, whenever someone says it can't go through X, they usually mention someplace I've already been.
Sugar sand sucks, though. :P

It's not an adventure unless you need a tent, a passport, and a leather glove for your shooting hand.
