What 2nd bike do people have? - Page 5 - Stromtrooper Forum : Suzuki V-Strom Motorcycle Forums
Other Motorcycles Forum for you to engage in banter about 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. This is not a tech forum on other bikes. There are other sites for that.

My second bike is a 2007 Goldwing that generally only gets used when my wife wants to go for a ride.

My third bike is a 2009 KLR 650 that I take out in the dirt every now and then. By far the bike I enjoy most, though, is my Vee.

2006 Yamaha Royal Star Venture, not quite a Goldwing but still a 900 lb touring bike with 100hp V4, air suspension, radio, cruise control, luggage, etc. Enjoy both that and my 09 Wee equally. Really like the KLR650's but dont really ride off road so the Wee is as close as I will ever get.

cafe racer

I'd love to find a Suzuki Savage somewhere and build a lean and mean Cafe Racer. No real good reason to do this, other than I like the look.

My other bike is a 550 Yamaha Grizzly ATV, for when I really want to go off road, 2500 lb winch helps for when I get a little carried away! Cheers--BB

My second scoot is a 2011 Yamaha WR250X. It's the last year Yamaha brought them to the US. I love it, but find I get a bit more daring in traffic than I do on my Wee. I pray that such smile provoking behavior will not lead to my demise (fingers and toes crossed here).

2nd bike

my other ride 1978 yamaha xs 650E, semi-cafe'ed with significant suspension up-grades, a fun contrast and change of pace to the dl 650.
