Call me a poseur, but save for a friend's gravel driveway, this ADV hasn't seen an inch of off-roading (yet). Bash guards be damned, I haven't gone anywhere I couldn't have gone on a Gold Wing and still, after almost 2000 all-paved miles, I can't imagine a better bike for this task (cheaper, maybe, but not better). The upright riding position won't wrinkle your shirt, and the laptop, lunchbox, and office loafers each get their own (lockable) hard bag. (I'm running the Jesse Odyssey side cases and the Trax top box that EIC Cook left on the bike, and I'll have more on those in the next installment.) Also , the monster V-twin makes more than enough power to evade idiot Interstate Instagrammers, and with more convenience features than a Lexus sedan, I'm always coddled too. The whole thing looks built to traverse Baja, but the Super Adventure's true home might be my local Beltline. Now I understand exactly why adventure bikes are so popular, even if most never venture off road.
