Other Motorcycles Forum for you to discuss anything about any other motorcycles. Good place for former (and soon to be) V-Strom owners to keep on the site even though they are without a strom.

My V-Strom is one of three bikes in my stable. I also have a 2007 GSXR-750 and a 2001 XR650R. The gixxer is my canyon carver and track bike, the XR handles off-road and supermoto duties (it's street-legal).

My "other" bikes are a 02 CBR954 for the street, and an 04 GSXR600 in track trim for use at the track.

No decent pics currently handy.

Klr is a great bike and will not break the bank. Can ride serious off road with it, go on the highway if need be, heck of a lot of fun and reliable.

My other bike is a 99 Valkyrie Tourer with a I/S trunk. Love this bike and still my #1 bike to ride.

....because BMW is a Luxury Brand and purchased by folks with not only a lot of money, but a need to own and project a "premium brand aura".

Those buyers tend to not purchase more pedestrian branded items.

Now, this is in general, and obviously there are exceptions.

Just sayin'.

Default 07 DL650 and 12 GSX-R750

I've put 53,000+ miles on my 2007 DL650 V-Strom, and have put 3,000 miles on my 2012 GSX-R750. Both are fantastic bikes. (I'm glad I rode a lot on my V-Strom, including classes, before tackling the Gixxer).

What happened? Did a BMW rider bone your wife or something?
