  1. DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Just been on an awesome trip with the DL1000. 1100Km of which half was dirt, and about half of that was pretty rough. No deep sand - thank goodness. I was with 2 Honda TransAlps, a 2015 Triumph Tiger XC and my son on his DR650. The DR650 ran rings around us on the rougher, tighter sections...

    Not that anyone would care.....but bought my 12 V Strom in early 2012 cause my DRZ400S killed me on the long pavement rides, although I loved it offroad. I then later sold the V Strom and changed to a new DR650se instead. Guess I thought I still wanted to do more dirt riding. After the DR...

  6. General V-Strom Discussion
    I have some new TKC80s installed... and if all goes well I will be riding back to my home town today and then taking my strom out to some sand dunes near my sister's farm... I am trying to build up experience with all types of riding in "rugged" terrain as part of preparations for my big a$$...
