If you can do 140 kmh on a rough road ............... talk to the guys that go to Argentina, Peru and Bolivia for the 2018 Paris-Dakar.
Find a good GPS and train a little bit and you will be able to become the next P-D winner.
It's not my cup of tea (anymore) to do 140 kmh on dirt roads.
I stick to nice tarmac roads with many twists and bends and as the icing on the cake, mountain roads.
No we don't have mountains in the Netherlands.
A mountain is a mountain if it reaches 1500+ meters. The nearest peak is also the highest point in the Netherlands (Vaalserberg)
But the area were I live, down south, we have hills and many winding roads.
It takes me maby 30 - 50 minutes to get into the Eifel mountain area in Germany or into the Ardennes (Belgium) or Luxemburg (Lux is only, on backroads, 110 km)
So you can see, enough fun driving to do.
If I really start riding, I can go to Switzerland, Austria or France in a day's ride ..................
Enough to choose (to see mountains)
I don't think steering damper will help. "R" is not designed for rough roads at speed. Suspension was not designed for it. You could try softening the suspension a bit to help absorb shocks. You need a "GS" if you want to ride on rough roads.
