First of all, if space and $ allowed I'd have one of every type bike in my garage. I've enjoyed riding street, mx, woods, trials, ..... That being said, I saw on Suzuki's website the V-Strom is considered a Dual Sport? "Dual" being a cross between the street and what? Maybe they have a little more suspension than most street bikes, but how are they any different than other street bikes? I've seen pictures of guys trying to ride them off-road, but why??? Not trying to knock another guys favorite ride, just didn't see the "dual sport' part of it. Greg T.
