Several reviews state the suspension is enough for some trail riding.....Opinions???
Sold it, my VStrom 1000, my Lariat F250 FX4 CrewCab Diesel and a lot of other things I didn't want to sell. I went through a divorce and cancer together, then a rash of home damage and breakins, then repeated identity theft (yeah - I think they were all related).^^^. "...was...???" Was it sold or traded..???
Depends on the trail. I used mine on lots of dual track and relatively smooth single track. Large ruts or rocks are the problem because of the small tires and low ground clearance. I could make it through the drainage culvert when it was dry without having to help it out - but it was close.

I had a sturdy basket mounted on the front and even with a gallon of milk, gallon of tea, and other groceries - I always took the 1 mile dirt trails out the back of my neighborhood to the store rather than the 5 mile out and around trip.
It was a great way to run to the store, pick the kid up at school, run over to a neighbors house... It could do 65 or 70 - but not easily, so I tried to avoid highways. Anything 45mph or below it was great for.
It's a Bontrager Simple City basket - but they stopped making them a few years ago. I bought all that I could get my hands on because they're sturdy as hell and the mounts are easy to customize/adjust. The Zuma's brush guards are mostly cosmetic, but they make good mounting points. I've set up similar ones for friends and the next best thing I found was the Minoura King Carrier.Do you have a link for that basket?
PS - sorry about that BS you had to deal with. Got the t-shirt for having to sell bikes b-c of ex. GRrrrr
