The Harley 750 is a surprise. I read a bunch of reviews and it sounds almost Japanese, the first Harley I could see myself buying, were they not so expensive compared to comparable Japanese bikes.

Dunno, but in the Uk my 750 new OTR was £5995. Compare that to any Jap 750 and I think you would be surprised ;)
I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left !

My V-Strom 1000 is the recent beaked model, a 2015 one with the upside down forks etc. The stock suspension is great. I find myself riding over broken roads just for fun. I have been alongside other bikes with the riders holding on struggling to stay in control. I grin and open it up :-) I find myself taking the Inazuma down the crappy roads for a giggle too sometimes. The challenge is to stay on the seat!

The downside to the V-Strom is its very easy to go a little too fast if you aren't careful. Slow revving with lots of torque low down. The Inazuma feels much faster until you look at the speedo :-)

The Inazuma's almost certainly better than my Speed Triple on bumpy roads  :008:

Having said that, it's probably 30 mph slower, so it' probably not a fair comparison  :008:

Today I rode my Inazuma for the first time in a month. (The cause of the riding lull is an unpleasant story.)

About a half hour into my ride, your words hit me and I concluded that probably a lot of the Inazuma's pleasantness on rough roads is due to it generally going a lot slower than most other bikes I would ride on the same roads.
