The bike looks like it could be lethal pushed any harder in less than ideal conditions.
Yea that guy was definitely riding at the edge of that bike's abilities. I'm guessing the average Strom owner is not recommended to ride the bike like that. I bet he could take a litre RR bike and do most of that same stuff on it too. Doesn't mean it's well-suited for it.

He should do a video with that bike, "Ride it till the wheels fall off"!!!

See just how much shit and abuse a Vstrom 1000 can take!

That was some sweet riding. I used to go up goat paths with my old Moto Guzzi... you can do a lot more on most motorcycles than you think IMHO.

There is an old line... The bike will go anywhere the rider has the capability of taking it.
So true,I followed a friend up a road on my old v45 magna. He was on a similar vintage goldwing with his 15 yr old son on the back. I would not go back there on anything less than a dedicated dirtbike.

HE never missed beat.
