    i'd keep the fjr and get a true dual-sport for that area.
    you have an amazing amount of dirt roads that are still too much for the strom.

    How did the Giant Loop Great Basin bag work out on the 'strom.? I have been considering getting that exact same one.

    Found a little dirt road off the Blue Ridge Parkway this weekend. I was impressed with the capability and responsiveness of the bike in the leaves and mud. Not a light nimble bike, but enough.

    Here's the video that goes with my Blue Ridge Parkway ride. Most of the video is offroad and dirt road riding.

    good thing that you got there when you did........the old drag line is gone now and the mine is opened back up chasing a deeper seam of coal. it'll surely look different when we can get back in there again.
