First Canadian Bikes Arrive

Just had a 'phone call from the dealer on Vancouver Island. They received a 2014 base model 1000 today, and expect 2 more tomorrow. These bikes missed the strike at the port of Vancouver.

If one of those is yours please post pics of them taking the bike out of the crate...!! love seeing those pics...The dealer said I can come and take pics of them un crating the bike when mine comes in. My dealer said the adventure model should be in by the end of this month. Not sure if I believe him. Went to another Suzuki dealer in town, they said April or May....Who knows...

I stopped at my dealer yesterday who said hejust spoke with "Chris" the U.S. representative, and that their first 2014 Vstrom 1000 would be there within the next two weeks. The representative said something about a change in releasing the Vstrom's, and that there was going to be an "early release".

I have chosen the standard model, and did not care what color. The dealer said their first one was going to be red and that is fine. It will be interesting to see if any of my Wee farkles will fit, and what aftermarket companies will offer.

How did you find the black color? Only saw a red and a khaki and was wondering what would the black look like in real.

Consensus is - it is too black, not good for conspicuity.

BTW - the tires are Bridgestone Battle Wings

I thought the black looked absolutely BOSS. If you like a black bike, this one is about as black as it gets.
