I would not want a camoflaged bike out in the woods. Hop off the bike because of a nature call. Turn around and the bike disappeared.
Hey, Jim...I'll wager that SR400 would work well with a lighter hack. Sorta reminiscent of a BMW R-50 with a Cucumber Steib. Gearing would be a snap with chain drive...longer shocks/slip the triple-trees would quicken up the steering. It appears to have a full-loop frame...neuvo-Panther?
Yes it has. Freakin' two wheeled SUVs. and I bet not 5% of them ever see a dirt road. Flippin' lemmings following each other into the next fad.
I'm 6'3" with a 36" inseam. I sold my 1200 Sport because the knee and hip bend was way too severe for me. Oddly enough, my Stelvio fits me perfectly! As much as I would love a new V7, I physically don't fit on it.
:DAnd those of us with shorter inseams want the opposite :)
I was riding my 35 year old XS1100 yesterday. I'm in the mountains and the pavement ended. Is there a worse bike in the dirt than an XS1100 Special? The road was beautiful as it followed two trout streams. I might enjoy more of these roads, but they are to be avoided on that bike. I assume that's what these ADV bikes are designed for. Pack a tent and sleeping bag and go? How much weight can you pack on a Stelvio with a full tank of fuel? Can a Stelvio handle a washboard rutted road better than a minivan?
I think one of the draws to Guzzi for many of us is the relative obscurity, or dare I saw, exclusivity of them.
Has This ADV Thing gotten out of hand?Yes it has. Freakin' two wheeled SUVs. and I bet not 5% of them ever see a dirt road. Flippin' lemmings following each other into the next fad.
