I got one today....too (Updated with Farkles!)

Picked up my Khaki 2014 Strom 1000 today! With sales tax and transferring/renewing my plate, I was at a true out-the-door price of $8784. Hard to argue with that!

And the dealer is only five minutes from my house. Back in September, I almost did the fly-n-ride to Romney in WV when they were advertising $9050 out-the door with the Suzuki tail case (which I really didn't want) and Romney is now advertising $8450 out-the-door without the tail case (see what they did there?).

Both Romney numbers ($9050 and $8450) do not include sales tax or license fees, so I really have nothing to complain about. Apples to apples, it was $8450 from Romney with the fly-n-ride vs. $8141 from Sky Powersports.

Let the farkling begin!

haha nice! With these prices, I imagine there will be lots of new owners! Congrats on your purchase, especially being right down the street! I had to drive 11 hrs round trip to get mine! ut:

It was worth it though!

You want to buy a brand new Suzuki oil filter protector comes on the 2014 adventure 1000, took mine off and installed a givi skid. Brackets and bolts come with it. NEW!

Thanks, but I'm going to get a proper bash plate. I'm looking at the Givi and the SW Motech but the Happy Trail seems pretty stout.

I need to do a bit more research to compare how difficult the various bash plates are to remove for oil changes. And which crash bars they'll work with.

Nice paint. Mine became Khaki recently. Actually the Rustoleum can said Tan but let's not quibble.
Makes the bike much more adventurous
Happy riding..

I've been on the road for almost a month. I ordered a bunch of parts while I was away and started to get everything sorted today, but ended up with a few snags. I ordered a Zumo 660LM and an over-the-dash GPS bracket from AdventureTech. I received the GPS but when I opened the package from AdventureTech, I thought the GPS bracket looked a lot like a fork brace. That's because they sent me a fork brace Oh well. Looks like the correct part won't be here till Monday and I travel again Tuesday :sad:.

From Motostorm in Italy, I ordered a bunch of Givi bits to include black 37L Trekker Outback side cases, a 42L top case, case racks, Givi aluminum top case bracket, Givi crash bars, Givi kickstand foot enlarger and a few cargo nets, etc. for the bags. The Givi crash bars showed up with a bit of a scratch. Doh! I touched it up today with some textured black Rustoleum. It actually seems to be a very close match. I've still got it taped up but I'll report back tomorrow on how well the Rustoleum blends.

The second issue appears to the fault of Givi; when I laid out the parts to install the SRA3105 aluminum top case bracket, I noticed I had two parts of which I only need one, and one part of which I need two. So much for the "Quality Inspected by #105" insert that was in the packaging. I'll have to shoot an email to Givi in the morning. I can't complain too much. The parts I ordered from Motostorm saved me nearly $700 vs. ordering from the states.

I got the Suzuki center stand installed. Super easy to install. And I also installed a bunch of decals/paint protectors I bought from Motorcycle.ca in Canada. These are part #'s 990D0-31J07-PAD, 990D0-31J03-PAD, 990D0-31J04-PAD and 990D0-31J01-PAD.

Tomorrow I'll tackle the BarkBusters, Kaoko throttle lock, side case brackets and crash bars. I've also got PC-8 auxiliary fuse block from Easter Beaver.
