Honda 919

Any of you guys come from a 919?

Have had one for many years and love it but it lacks a little in touring mode.

Been thinking about a Wee-Strom for a few years. Just curious if somebody has ridden both and would care to share his or her opinion.

THANKS Paul

I have ridden both, and they are like apples and oranges. Your Honda is pure adrenaline, you've probably gotten used to how quickly your bike revs and gathers speed. We all love our V Stroms for the well balanced, competent, do it all bikes that they are, but be realistic in your expectations, they are not going to fly like the 919. If you want a more well rounded bike that you can commute and tour on, comfortably carry a passenger, and explore the occasional dirt road than a V Strom is hard to beat.
