We had no problem going upstate, but once the hills started, you can tell that engine was struggling.
Wait...how in the hell did you get a VStrom seat on there? I cannot stand the DR650 seat, and upgrading to a Corbin didn't help a bit. The few VStroms I've ridden, however, had very comfortable saddles. Can you give us any info on that piece of work? Friggen awesome.
