I met a guy yesterday on a brand new V-Strom. I'm not sure I get it. These dual purpose bikes don't really do anything for me. Although I haven't ridden one, it looks like a bad compromise on a street bike and an off road bike (i.e., it doesn't do either type of riding as it is intended). I used to do dirt bike riding and I sure wouldn't want to take this thing too far off the road. For the street, the seat is too high, the tires are all wrong and, looks aside, it doesn't appear that it can corner like a cruiser or a sports bike. Am I alone here ? :-\
