New Strom owner in Alberta
Hey all, this past weekend I picked up a brand new DL650A Explorer edition. I have been looking at getting a V-Strom for a few years now but was only looking at the used market. Then I saw this one for about $1000 more than the average on the market and it had warranty and I was sold.
Most of the time spent on the bike will be commuting, but I do intend to wander off the pavement regularly for camping and fishing purposes. Need to get some more protection for the bike before that tho.
So far, this bike is much more comfortable, easier to ride and has a much larger range than any of my previous bikes. Any hint at buyers remorse was eliminated on the first ride to work. Can't wait for the break-in to be done. This is my first 0km vehicle, not used to break-in periods.
