1)can the Stroom carry 350 pound of people and 50 of gears on gravel road ?
Yes very easily.. One of the reasons I bought the 1000 over the 650..
2) what will be the best year to buy
Im not sure any year over 05 is that different over the other.. I would get as late of model as you find for a good price
3)what are the best usefull mods to do (engine wise)
Not sure there is much really to do to the engine.. Many will say take secondaries out, K&N, etc.. But I personally feel the K&N has hurt my mileage. I added a Power Commander to help make the engine run smoother which it did, but Im not sure pipes are worth the money..
4)how is the off road 2 up loaded ( sand and gravel ) Not having ridden a GS I can't imagine with the weight difference that the DL1000 would be any worse.. The roads Ive been on mine has handled fine..
5)does anyone did a bigger tank.
Not that Im aware of.. If you find one I would be interested..
