What is the suspension movement now, and what is the ground clearance?
I rode dirt bikes in my teens but don't have any recent dirt experience so I'm waiting until after I get the crash bars / skid plate built to see what level of dirt work I want to put her through. I took her up and down a wet grassy embankment and the D616's did not inspire confidence. I'm thinking maybe Tourance on different wheels. Work gets in the way and now I'm gearing up for a 4,000 mile road trip. I'll report on off road action if I see any.

My suspension mods raised the ride height about 1.5" and a picked up about 3/4" of travel. This 919 is by far the most nimble "street bike" I've ever ridden. The progress is slow but I'm having a blast.
