Joke 1: it is another hipster-adventurer bike
Joke 2: it will probably be more than capable enough to handle what 80% of us on this forum do for "Adventure" biking
Joke 3: it will hardly be taken off-tar in SA due to the repair cost of even a modest "off"*
Joke 4: I would buy one if I had the money (and you can get decent crashbars for it!)
