There are paved roads, unpaved roads, and off-road. Big ADV bikes are fine for ROADS (both paved and unpaved). Too many people call unpaved roads "off-road" and that's just wrong IMO.

20K+ miles on DID ZVM chains. I think my OEM chain lasted about 20K miles as well, then two DIDs. Bike will get yet another set of new chain/sprockets in the spring.

Just throwing this out there, but if you have a tear/hole in your CV diaphragm, the slide won't raise or won't raise correctly when you open the throttle, feeling like it's running on one cylinder.
