Fork Angle

I have been a Honda fan for along time, until the Super Tenere which I ordered. The honda doesn't seem to be as off road worthy as the Yamaha or GS. I suspect the bike will be over 600lbs and over $15k, bags probably not included.
The forks to me still look outdated and on the small side of 43 or 45 mm. I like how Yamaha has gone to USD forks more modern along with the wave rotors. The front fork angle looks like it sticks out too far like an F650GS or something. THis design of the CrossTourer just doesn't look completely "Adventure" capable.

Come on may!!! Super Tenere yippie!!!
