well i guess we have a different take on offroad bikes. here where i live, its not allowed to ride off the paved road. there are a few exceptions, and working on a farm here helps too, but gravel roads are usually prohibited. that limits the big here in austria and europe in general to the tarmac. cause all the offroad parks are made for super light exc´s or wr´s and so on. and like i said, it has offroad capabilities, but they are limited. my bigs are parked next to a ducati and a buell. so i see your point, there is a difference. but its also parked next to my husky dirt bike...and there is a difference aswell.
