That's an interesting issue. Maybe as the bike gets run in a bit that will change.
Mine did the opposite. I rode at "---" for about 40 kilometres before I had to push. ;) Got over 420 kilometres on...

Fork seals were not up to the task and failed.
Other than that I haven't had a single issue with mine - rock solid! 50,000 kilometers.

I've done it by accident when caught out in storms a few times. On through roads that had ice and snow. But never on purpose. Although, there is ice racing not far from the city where people take...

I guess it's time to do mine. I've got 50,000 kilometres on mine without an issue but it'll be part of my winter maintenance just to be safe.

First time taking the bike apart seems like a chore and a bit scary. It gets easier each time. It's really well designed and easy to remove once you know what you're doing.

If I had to pick one other than the Honda, I think I'd pick the V-Strom but I'd buy the 650 instead. Having ridden one, I was really quite blown away with just how capable it is on the highway and...

I'm glad to hear that you rode it out.
I've had the same experience at highway speed. Instant deflation with a fully loaded bike. Sure gets you to pay attention in a hurry.

I think that is exaggerated. I've done installs and take-offs with a couple sets of Mitas E07 Dakar tires with levers. If the tire is warm or has been on the bike and worn it's not much different...

I haven't seen anything that pulls me toward it like the AT. I like the Tenere and T700 but they are too big and one is pretty stripped down for the price. I've always like the GS Adventure but...

I don't think it's tube thickness that is the issue. I've been riding 40,000 kilometres on the bike with UHD tubes and haven't had a flat. In the first 10,000, I had a nail flat in the front with the...
