Nice pair of bikes! I've got the same one but non XT, didn't want the spoke wheels.

I'm really enjoying mine, after spending the last year on an ST1300 it feels so light!

2018 Vstrom 1000
2014 Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Nomad

I am generally not a yellow fan - but that yellow looks very sharp!

Pick me bike up on Saturday, or Friday if they can swing it. Supose to rain Saturday, which is not a good time to ride a new bike, with technologies on it that I have no familiarity with. Learning traction control, slipper style clutch and advanced abs system.

Wow, a matching set! Congrats!

I like the yellow tank (I have a yellow SV650) and gold wheels, but I couldn't do the yellow seat. I bought a black 1000XT yesterday.

Holy cats, the '18 Stroms are popping up all over all of a sudden. And I thought I was one of the few...
Now start hoping the '19's aren't throttle by wire with cruise control.

2018 1000XT, black. The Night's Watch. Givi engine bars, rear wheel mud guard, radiator screen. Givi V56 Litre Monokey topcase. Puig screen. Freeway Blaster horn. Speedohealer. SW Motech guards for R. brake reservoir, R. brake cylinder, exhaust pipe valve. Aprilia Tuono mirrors. GPR exhaust slip-on.
2006 DL1000, The Red Rhino. Gone for good.
