    ^ ^ ^ I think you'll get used to them and be perfectly fine on the pavement. The extra weight would be more noticeable on any loose surfaces. :thumb

    Challenging terrain + 500 lb bikes + hard bags - good traction = broken ankles!

    Agree. I don’t have any off road pretense for this bike. My last Vstrom was a great traveler and that’s what I bought this one for as well. I am toying with the idea of some BCDR exploration, etc. in the near future but I’ll buy buying something else for that.

    Completed the second half of my trip across the country. Canada is pretty remarkable.

    Heading south from northern BC towards Lillooet BC along the arid mountainous landscape:

    Meeting other bikers unexpectedly:

    Heading to Vancouver Island - first one on the boat!

    Pure Canadiana, north of Pemberton BC:

    There's a bike way down there!

    Twisty roads everywhere in BC.

    Planes flying high near Kelowna BC!

    Wildfire smoke from the western states blowing north into BC:
    [​IMG]

    Smoke so thick I couldn't breathe, so I wore a facemask for 900km/540miles of riding to get from the interior of BC to Alberta:
    [​IMG]

    Still pretty smoky in Alberta:
    [​IMG]

    Nothing like the beauty from the changing of the seasons as I come back into Ontario:

    Nice to be back home. Finally some blue skies in Ontario along the Tail of the Dragon North:

    Beautiful. More than one of those pics should be framed and hung in a place where they could be enjoyed for years to come.

    Thanks and I agree. Many years ago I came across this neat motivational poster and always wanted to use my own pictures for it. Now I finally can.

    2014 with 6k miles. I done a few cosmetic and ergonomic upgrades. Great bike for my 6'-4" frame. Great traveling bike.
