2012 V Strom 1000 Adventure for Commuting
My FJR was put into the Concrete embankment on the Freeway by a woman who didn't look before she changed lanes and hit my bike. The insurance is totaling it and I have to buy a new bike. I commute 52 miles round trip a day rain or shine and I want a bike that sits upright, gets over 200 miles per tankful, can cut through traffic with ease, and carry all my gear. Cover, Bag, Helmet, etc. How good is the windshield?
Is this the bike for me?
What is the maintenance schedule? how expensive is it to own? Does it have enough power to get around on the freeway but nimble enough for the city? I'm not an offroader but I am not a fair weather rider either.
