KLR shames Vstrom

KLR shames Vstrom:
I read this on a Vstrom rider's Central America ride report.

"The end for me was a slick rock step up that the Vstrom didn't handle too well. We decided to leave the bike below the farm, and I rode up on the back of Paul's KLR. Oh the shame!"

The KLR did two-up what the Vstrom couldn't do one-up.

I didn't know that you had enough room on the back half of your seat, Paul S.?

No surprise to me; the Vstrom, Versys, etc. etc. are NOT offroad bikes despite some of the marketing hype; they are "all roads" bikes at best IMO. It's easy to forget that buried under the 1980's design, extra porkage and budget components lies the bones of an actual offroad bike....dated yes, but functional.
