65 miles so far and loving it.

I love my hot grips by the way. I am working on lighting right now and also the windshield. I am going with the madstad and the CS windshield.

This my third bike and by far is the smoothest of them all.
My KTM was quicker and handled better but the KTM's brakes were way to much. After 2000 miles it started leaking from 2 different areas and the bolts used to hold the oil filter cover were a composite material and were easily stripped.

The Vstrom's quality and finish is very nice in my opinion for this price point.

After I rode the bike for the first time the first things that came to mind were --smooth, predictable handling and braking, and comfortable.

I bought this bike with much research and with the advice from a long time vstrom owner.

Just north of Monptellier, France

I got a white one back in October, and I love it. I don't regret my color choice 'cuz it makes me look so much cooler than I really am, but I love the way the orange looks in all your pictures. I got the Suzuki engine protector since this pic, but it's one of my favorite places to ride so that's what you see today!

Just got it home from the dealership yesterday! Took them 2 weeks to finally get the indicator light fixed, so excited to have it! My niece and nephew love it, brother is way jealous. All he gets to do is fondle the throttle, lol. Stock as can be right now.
