My 4+ yr old MTS has 60,000+ miles on her & exactly 96 miles on 'dirt/gravel' roads. Actually, 'road'. Ya wonder how I know the exact mileage? Because the good friend I visit every year, in NE Oregon, lives 12 miles down a gravel road.....one way! I've visited him 4 times, therefore 4 x 24 = 96 miles. NO 500+ lbs bike is good 'off road'. As far as 'up right sport bike'....my superbike friends, with everything from 675R's to RSV4 to MV's, ain't any faster on Hwy 36 then my sexy MTS. AND two of these guys I've done track days with.....we all run 2:05's at Thunder Hill (on our track bikes.....the MTS has serious ground clearance issues!).
Its the BEST bike I've ever ridden!
