I have been riding touring and GS BMS since 1989 and wanted something with more suspension travel than my K75 to baby my mature and aging back. I test rode a 2011 BMW F650GS (800cc - go figure) and rode a neighbor's (nice guy) 2011 650 Strom the next day. My mind was made up. The K75 was sold and a 2012 650 V-Strom Adventurer is in the garage. Does anyone want to buy a set of Suzuki Adventure aluminum side cases? Great bike, questionable (to be kind) luggage.
