He is.

He's got an opinion that there are normal V-Stroms and Coffee-V-Stroms.
His one is the normal.

I think I get it, but what exactly does he mean by "coffee" v-strom. I call most hybrid/ styleless cars "jelly bean cars" because of their beanish appearance. Is a coffee strom one that just goes to coffee shops and never rides hard or off road?

I notice his side cases are not bashed in. Rides off / not bashed in side cases - Hmm?
Most people, myself included, are of the opinion that the V-Strom is not a worthy off-pavement bike. I would be happy to see someone dispell that myth.

Its no DRZ but I think you are mistaken.



I even led 20 or so people on a ride last year, many of them new to offroad.

This guy rode around the world on an R1:

This guy did it on a GoldWing:

Surely a V-Strom with longer suspension travel, a larger tank, etc,etc can do it too..........

I was with him that day, that was some of the milder riding we did. Ask him about the big up hill rutted single track to the over look of the river. Not sure if Graywolf has pictures of that however. Asked him about the DR650 guy saying he was impressed we got up the hill. It makes for a good campfire story!

That riding position looks incredibly uncomfortable, even for a 10 minute ride.
