On my 3rd Strom

iv had a love affair with stroms. in the last 6 years iv had 3. i think this one is the best yet! i just got it today. its a garage queen! 2006 dl650, 8000 miles. set up for touring with tons of farkles.

i like the 2006 better than my 2007 and 2008 models i had. (shorter wheelbase and only 2 spark plugs).

Very nice. I can't imagine there are many cleaner '06 models out there. Enjoy Strom #3

Why have you had to have 3? Was there something wrong with the other ones?

no i never had any trouble from any of them. i put about 20k miles on each and sold it just because i wanted to try different bikes. but it looks like i always come back to the strom

oh and i currently have a suzuki burgman 650 too. done the same with it. on my 3rd also. never any trouble from any of them either.

That's the way to buy them. Let the previous owner spend the money on farkles. Good find and congrats.

??? makes little sense to me. I bought one. I will wear it out....I think anyway since it has 80,000 miles in 5 years already.

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.

You don't have to sell them just because they're dirty, ya know!

Sometimes I'm facetious.
