Choose the best forum when creating a thread

I spend a lot of time moving threads. Please check forum titles for the best fit for a new thread. Especially note when the subject fits any V-Strom. For example, the latest was a post about XM radio that was created in the 2012+ DL650 forum. Don't choose a model specific forum for your bike if your subject applies to all V-Stroms.

I just moved this thread from General V-Strom Discussion to Support, Help and Information.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

I know what you mean GW. I'm an Admin on the Australian Land Rover Owners forum and some owners become blinkered and see only the forum that relates to their model - so every question goes there, whether or not it is vehicle-specific or general chatter.

only makes sense
the same would hold true to a post reply, often replies to a model specific post are made by folks who don't have the model in question-you think you got an answer and the help you need, only to find the reply relates to a different bike.

Sometimes doing a search of the subject of the contents of the post will reveal many others prior posts of the same matter. Lots of newer folks are just too excited about the inquiry to be aware of the cashe of info here.
