Welcome. Good luck finding your next ride.
IMnsHO, the V-strom is not a dual sport. Oh, you can ride it on trails but it lacks the suspension and weighs too much, also my opinion. However, if you like riding on roads of all sorts, it is a great steed!
There are 10 types of people, those who know binary and those who don't.
What I ride now:
2013 Honda GoldWing (The Lady)
2014 V-strom 650 (The Mistress)
Previously: 07 Ultra Classic, 95 Softail, 80 gs450l
