I agree with Fred that this is a good bike on and off road. I myself own a 3AJ, toured a lot on road in Europe (Spain, Portugal, Hungaria, two up) and did some serious off roading on a trip from the Netherlands to Ghana (solo). The bike so far has never failed me. The type of off road riding you encounter in Europe should be no problem at all. I have no experience with DR’s or KLR’s but I’m so satisfied with this bike that I don’t feel any urge to go looking for a replacement, maybe this says enough!
