Reading through this thread, our motorcycling backgrounds can be vastly different. I did only incidental off roading on my ZX11; from the pavement across the grass or two track to my tent. Coming from a big sportbike or bagger the DL650 is amazing on gravel, even with 80/20 tires. But coming from a "real bikes have tubes" background, ADV bikes are too heavy and ponderous in a sandy creekbed. And our standards and expectations have evolved over the years.

Oof, that's a lot of bike to wrassle through snow and mud. Good fun if you have a crew to help, wouldn't want to try it alone.

Oh I'm with you man, I would have been on my 250, but my buddy didn't want to take his 790ADV R on the trails so I was "stuck" with the strom 😝

Somewhere on trails between Middleton and New Germany.
Sort of in my neighbourhood (Kentville area), but I've never gone south across NS. Home to Greenwood/Kingston a bunch of times.

Cheers,

Small freakin' world man! I've got lots of GPX tracks that I've imported and edited into nice rides on basecamp if you're interested!

Hell yeah! I have basecamp on my old computer and use Garmin Nuvi 760/765 on the bikes. However, I am computer dumb and don't know what to do with basecamp. Moving this to PM.

Cheers,

I have to say stock v-strom is the worst bike for off-road I had so far, even honda nc750x was far better.
Bad tyres (adventure wannabe), soft suspension, bad geometry/ergonomy, horrible ABS (if you don't witch it off), low ground clearance,
not enough torque etc etc It's basically street, touring bik nothing more..
