Wire wheels, worth the extra money?
I am looking at buying a 650 V-Strom and I like the new XT with the wire wheels. The bags are nice, but I am not sure if I really want those hard bags.
So, what is the advantage to the wire wheels, and do I need them? I have a KLR 650 right now and I use it to do FS roads and fire roads. I also have a BMW that is road only. The V will replace both and be used for road touring and mild off road. I do want to do things like the TAT, and the Back Country Discovery Routes.
So, should I buy the one with the wire wheels for more money, or save and buy the basic with ABS and build what I want?
