V-Strom rider contemplating a 300X
I've joined the forum looking for rider reviews on the Versys 300 X. I ride the back roads and dirt roads on my 650 V-Strom and discovered that I might manage a 300X AND keep my Strom for about the cost of trading up my Strom.
I'm an old dirt biker who after owning a Honda Dominator and a Suzuki DR650 found the Strom to be more comfortable for much longer distances while still being able to handle those rough dirt roads. As the years go by I still like to explore the rarely used dirt roads and worry that I might have a problem if I dropped the Strom. We all know you will only ever drop your bike at the most inconvenient of places.
Not really worried if it will do 70mph or 80mph comfortably on the motorway I'm more looking for rider impressions on rough back sealed roads and on dirt roads, even as far as some easy dual sport, if anyone has done that yet.
Hi all, and I am looking forward to reading your opinions.
