So sad that this guy never took it off road for real.
Maybe he needs another 50'000km to get bored of repeating all the pavement around where he lives.
Let's check where he is at in 2-3 years...(I mean, I bet he can't just eat level 1 - you'll see).
I started doing off pavement with my ninja, it was around 150'000km when I got quite into it. Got the versys and oh my this is fun with tkc80 front and any decent aggressive 50/50 rear.
It's so great to be able to do highway at 120 km/h, then hop in the woods for an hour of rocky forest road, pop back on twisties and back out into a trail with sand so on, without even pausing. This is what the VERsatile SYStem (well, let say 1 extra inch suspension and a 17 inch front wheel, really) is for.
