Well finally, a thread about taking the Vs. off road.
Sure, it may not be up to dirt bike standards in
many respects (I saw a picture of some crazy
person fording a stream with the exhaust completely
sauturnine0; I really love that shot of you looking
off and the V is sitting there by itself. What a
cool promo shot, like in a Kawasaki marketing
Many folks run strictly on pavement, yet there
are so many unexplored miles of dirt roads, let
alone passable trails/terrain that this bike should
be able to traverse. Knowing there are specialty
tires for more aggressive exploration is even better.
I've only ever owned one bike that I wouldn't
take off pavement to some degree (a Honda
SilverWing Maxi-Scooter that would break 100
mph but was totally useless in sand or gravel).
Heck, it's one of the capabilities that turned
me on to the Versys. I don't intend to run
motocross or hill climbing but, lacking a horse,
there are places that I intend to try to get
to that a car can't. Thanks for the great
pictures and encouragement, everyone.
