I am out of the V-strom game, but not because of a crash. I am just could not come to terms with some of the bikes quirks.
Engine and wind management problems I wouldn't live with, and if Suzuki wasn't interested in fixing them, than I wasn't going to spend my cash to try and fix them either.
I traded her last June for an ST1300, and have 26,000 very satisfied km on her, I'll probably try and pickup a KLR, or something like it sometime.
I will say I am very dissapointed, there was somethings I loved about the bike, but in the end I just couldn't live with it.
