as you can see the lady looks very good as well as the bike though.
But I have to say, that now this is 90% on road bike and only 10% off road bike. I cannot imagine taking such bike for water crossing or exploring some trails. There are too many tiny pieces on this bike which, after first crash, will just fell off. Maybe I`m wrong, but that was the first impression.
... and you put this picture up to reinforce the observation an inmate made in an earlier comment, that this bike provides lots of leg...
...room

All new bikes are too pretty to get banged up by an amateur like me, trying to stay upright on some fire road - well a KLR650 might the exception. I wish I was a better rider, but I am not, so I ride slowly and sometimes fall over.
