Lots of ponies and a very fine engine. May not get you down all the gravel trails you're accustomed to, but who knows? Maybe it will!

I love BMW's, heck I have owned three of them. But sometimes think that they are over rated. Heck even a newer DL1000 would work and allow you to get on gravel.

I'm guessing you will only be able to do this one more time before SWMBO sticks a trowel in your hand and points toward the flower garden. So why not try something new and radical and have fun with it?
Even though I'm currently loathing you, you've had a V-Strom before, gearing is infinetly adjustable,even Claude thought this was a great tug and it's got eveything and more.

Blue's my favorite color and then Jay could help you with all Claudes shoddy work
