I do believe that Germany takes better care of their roads than the US does. We have many that would be nicer if they were gravel or graded dirt.

I've been on many that abused friends on Goldwings and Harleys that I found perfectly fine on the GS. I'd hardly call my suspension soft but I'm also not running stock...
