My VStrom Experiences and how I documented them on Video

Hi I have had the Vstrom for about 15 months and logged about 23K miles, and i had captured/document my experiences, as I enjoy the motorcycle a lot

Here is a commuting video i had done:

Here was my original video on why i got the Vstrom

I had put on LED lights and here is my video:

Another ownership evaluation compared to other bikes

My Two Brothers exhaust replacement

I still enjoy VStrom a lot.

Let me know if you think i was off-base or I can highlight other plus points or improvement points for the VStrom which may help potential buyers or owners of this great bike.

Even after test riding so many other motorcycles, i still would not sell my Vstrom
Big B and Pauloxxi like this.

I just came across your videos on Youtube last week. I watched the commuter and the exhaust so far. Nice work.

I was impressed with the mileage you are getting. I am no where near that but I have 3 cases and the stock exhaust so my bike is a bit heavier. So now I'm considering commuting with just my topcase and after my road trip last month I was already thinking about an exhaust just to cut weight.

Thanks DGray, yeah i think if you remove the side cases, and upgrade the exhaust that will help.

Another thing i did was i removed the rear footpegs, as i always ride solo, and i was suprised how heavy the rear pegs were so that helped too..........thanks for the note........will try to create more and more meaningfull videos on the Vstrom and hope to get more suggestions/topics to cover etc
