Everythings relative.

For me, handling a VStrom (or a 12GS) off road is a real bitch without a sidecar. These things are HEAVY.

I use my XR400 for real off road.

The hack has a separate brake pedal for the sidecar, makes handling kinda fun. Does great donuts.

Plus, it will roll backwards, (downhill) without tipping over

With the trunk of the SC full of beer, I don't have to turn around.

Also, i have a passenger who can help some.

Finally, I usually pay attention where i am riding on any of the big bikes.
