I know a couple of (good) guys who change bikes probably..........I said probably (I don't know for sure)........more often than they change their underwear. I see nothing "wrong" with it.........and more than likely would too if I could swing it. There are so many bikes, and so little time to ride.........!!

I'm on my third Strom too. I totaled an '05 Wee I had for 5 months, put 77,000 miles on an '07 Wee and am happy with a '12 Glee,

Totalling your bike is probably a good enough reason for replacing it.

She's a looker all right! What windshield is that? I want to upgrade from the stock to a bigger one. That looks perfect!

Nope, could see vee to wee or vise/versa. Or old wee to new wee. But just changing color...not sure I follow your thought process. Nope, like wives I keep them until they do me wrong.
funny that u mentioned wives. i traded her in too , on a newer model with fewer miles.

In Canada we have to pay HST everytime we change bikes. That 12% on top of the purchase price really hurts and stops me from switching bikes out. I would love to be able to afford to that.

Insurance up here bites too.

Looks like a nice bike. Looks like new.

Yes in did. Just got her home last day of the last year (yesterday). #4 V Strom. #2 Wee. With just over 2000 miles on it, she should be good for next season.

Three here too, 25k miles on an '05, traded it on an '07 ABS, sold that with 63k miles, and I have about 6500 miles on a '12.

The mock up of the next DL1000 has my interest...
