Fair comment: I have a KTM 300EXC and that will kick my Ducati's arse every time. However, I can't take my Mrs on it. The Ducati is gravel roads only, not 'off road' and works pretty good.
I have the Hypermotard SP and with its extra long suspension compared to the Hyperstrada; it is fine.

Agreed, gravel roads and what we call fire service roads it works great, and is a lot of fun. Anything requiring larger wheels and knobby tires makes no sense to me.

I'd have to agree, its like the people who take their GS1200s off road, they are far too heavy and expensive just get a DRZ or a proper enduro bike.

Y'all don't know what you're missing ! Hit a gravel/dirt road and try it out , the dirt will wash off. My buddy said the new TKC80's I put on were throwing a rooster tail 3ft high and 30ft behind me . You can't help but smile .

I agree with Frank! Ask Pat I covered him with mud and he was 20 yards behind me!

Hello, I am Hasan from Malaysia. This is a few photos recently took from an event I joined at my local national park forest Mat Daling near Ulu Tembeling. along with a lot of GS. Very hard core stuff. Gravel, sand, clay, river crossing, rain at night, all types of terrain along the way. This trail meant for 4x4 and enduro bikes. Luckily I made it. It's about 300KM off-road and 300KM tarmac in 2 days. I have a lot of fun.

My bike was equipped with Evotech Performance Radiator, engine guard and frame slider, ROX riser, rear tire Mitas MC60, front tire is stock.

I fell a few times. Not much damage, only the rear brake lever was slightly bent.

More event's photos here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rimba...42?sk=timeline

That is hard core right there.. Wouldn't ever dream about doing that to my Strada.. Mostly because I'd hate to clean it afterwords.
