I am considering a Versys 650 and was wondering if you have any insights as to how well it does off road. Not dirt biking, just fire roads, dirt roads, etc. Am considering running part of the Transamerican Trail next year and want a bike that I don't need to trailer to the start of the trail.
I am 55, and just started riding about 2 years ago. Bought a HD Sportster and love it. Just cannot go everywhere I would like on it.
Considering a V-strom as well, but it sure looks like the Versys may be the better deal. Will likely be taking some test rides this weekend.
Have you ridden anywhere off the tarmac yet?
