Strom suspension on rough roads?
One of the reasons I bought my old KLR was because it had suspension that would handle our less than primitive local roads. I'm not talking trails, or even dirt roads. Our main state roads are terrible at best, with potholes and cracks. I enjoyed my KLR because there was no streetbike that could come close to keeping up with me on these kinds of roads. Sportbikes just bounced around, and cruisers bottom out. I know because I hardly ever ride my Intruder because of it.
I know a Strom isn't built for long travel, such as jumps and harsh landings. But how do they do on the rougher roads? If they are half way between a KLR and an average sportbike, I should be quite happy.
