Seems to me the v/wee storm owners feel the need to justify their choice of bike. Pretty sad. Ride what you like, I ride a tiger 1050 for now. Put 50k on it not needed to do anything but minimal maintenance. Oil, tires, brakes,chains... as far as going anywhere.... I took a scooter on a 8k trip of roads highways and yes dirt lol... fire roads and camped off it for a week and s half. 11days. Get what suits you, learn the bike and enjoy it.

I'm not going to stoop to your level. You're wrong. You know you're wrong and I make a point of never fighting with pigs. You end up dirty and the pig enjoys it. Case in point here, americans.
ADVgrifter and your buddies. Enjoy your overweight ugly-as-a-sack-of-crap touring whales. Enjoy announcing to the world that you're stupid and a special brand of stupid that feeds on being able to revel in your stupidity. Anyone with half a brain in here (ie, non-americans apparently) is laughing at you.
There is actually another thread asking what bike and in that one I recommended the Strom because it did match the needs of the person asking the question. It does not match the needs in this thread. End of discussion really and anyone not realising it must have a special kind of retardation which comes from crashing in a country too free to bother with crash helmets, although from what I read here the heads are hardly worth protecting.
I haven't found what I was looking for in this forum, (ie IQs in triple figures) so I don't spend a lot of time here and will be spending less in the future. Enjoy bickering over your dumb-arse opinion you feel you're entitled to by way of a sense of patriotism more bloated than your bikes (and from the pictures, yourselves.)
You're largely a bunch of racist, hillbilly redneck morons. I guess you knew that already. Say hi to your sisters for me. I'm sure you'll see them in bed later.
I am Amercan. I am actually native. I don't appreciate you insulting and lumping "Americans" in one pile of racist hating turf. You are actually the same as the guy you just insulted, making the same assumptions and calling it out the same way. Next time you choose to not engage in the same stupid manner Don't. You both are in the wrong. So stay on the subject. You gave your opinion he gave his... go argue somewhere else.

It's funny how much people make fun of the VStroms. Now I'm now expert but I have owned a few bikes in the past. 2 08 BMW GSA's and an 09 BMW GSA. An 04 KTM 950 "S" Adventure. Also a 2011 KLR 650. Current ride is a 2007 DL 650. What I can say is that this DL has been as much fun as all my other bikes. No it's not the best road or dirt bike out there but it does everything good. My BMW GSA was my all time favorite bike on the Road. But super expensive for everything. I'm talking parts and maintenance. The KTM was my favorite big bike off road but hated it on the street. The KLR was just BLAH for me.. My VStrom is my keeper bike. It amazes me what it does for the cost. I have had more fun on my VStrom than any of my other bikes just for the fact that I know it's bulletproof. It just does everything... And it will be the bike I keep for along time..

I don't think they are ugly either.....

Is a heavy perhaps complicated ADV bike what the OP should get based on his needs?

Triumph Scrambler. Simple, air cooled, carbed, low stress motor. Nothing fancy.

Don't feed the Troll, don't quote the Troll. He'll eventually get bored and go back under his rock.

I personally don't think anything FI would be a good "go anywhere" bike. Anything that can do reasonably well 2-up will not be good off-road, it just won't. Sort of like "cheap, fast and reliable..."
