The VFR 1200x also intrigues , but it would need $3k in bags and protection , so , off my list . Probably a good thing that I can't test ride it !
Do it, Ride it! Trust me, that 3000.00 will be long forgotten the first time you grab a hand full of throttle. When I'm saddled up money is the last of my thoughts, its the only time, but its a good feeling to know it was well spent. ROFLMAO!
Do it! You can thank me later.
If You're Gonna Be Stupid, You Better Be Hard, because stupid hurts!
I no longer own a V Strom, but I'm still here because its the best bike forum going!
