OK, so I've narrowed it down to a Wee
..if I can find one to test drive. I currently ride a '99 DR350SE and had narrowed my next bike down to either a Versys or a V-Strom. Well, I test rode a 2011 Versys this past weekend and that thing had a "buzz" about it during certain revs under acceleration that I didn't like...felt like I had a sack of bumblebees in my britches.
Once again, another perfect example of the importance of taking a test ride on any bike you intend to purchase. At one time I also had my sights set on a Triumph Tiger 955i...until I rode one.
So, please tell me the V-Strom is smoother than the Versys and that they don't come with a hive of bees installed.
