I love riding/touring my KTM950SM on broken roads!
The rough tires and tire plug kit of your choice, a SW-Motech skid plate, Baja Designs lights and some luggage, are all a guy needs for that machine to get some miles of unmaintained secondary roads and smiles!

Only word of caution:
Alloy rims bend at the bead when they hit square edge, tire swallowing pot holes...DAMHIK

edit: my graphics didn't work too well so I ditched some of them...
