A couple of my amphibious type colleagues from work did a run up to the top of the Gaspe this summer. One on an st13 and one on an sv650. They were riding 500+ miles/day for 10 days straight and Denis came to the conclusion that the V-strom is not a long range bike, as much as he loves it.
Better to go for the 1000 Strom.

At the coffee shop last night, a couple of the guys have started planning a
2 week trip that would include Labrador, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. They
estimate 4000 miles with over 900 miles of unpaved roads. Since there's no
Fandango this year, I think I might go. I would have to buy a bike as
neither the GPZ nor the Daytona is suitable for 900 miles of unpaved road
(although it doesn't sound all that much different than the last time I was
in Canada. Vermont's roads were paved but I think unpaved roads would have
been smoother). The three that are planning it have a Kaw KLR650 (new) and
two Beemer GS1100's so I'm thinking of an "adventure tourer", something that
won't break the bank because I might sell it right after the trip. Right now
I'm thinking 650 V-Strom. Anyone have any other suggestions?
