I'm sure that Harley doing the "study" has no bearing on the result.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informa...-you-have.html

At least they were willing to sponsor one. I don't see Suzuki doing anything like that, or for that matter Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha or anyone else.
Come to think of it what do any of those companies do for their buyers other than just take their money?

My wife was interested in a small moto, or a scooter to commute to work on. She's really not a very good car driver, and I was worried her wobbly driving skills would get her into hot water on a motorbike......I didn't have to try to hard to convince her, and amazingly agreed with me regarding that! PHEW!

My wife is interested in a Piaggio MP3 or a Can-Am Spyder. She is also too wobbly for 2 wheels.
