Thank you for opening this up to questions. Like many other riders, I am extremely interested in this bike. A few questions:
  1. Are the tubed tires a pain to deal with? Do they cause any problems at high speed?
  2. How does the bike handle in sand and loose gravel?
  3. What modifications or add-ons do you recommend for this kind of journey?
  4. Not sure if you can speak to this but how does it compare to the big GS and the V-Strom?
  5. What do you like best about the bike?
  6. What do you hate the most about the bike?
Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer.
