Oh how I love thee...

Last fall I was relocated within our company. So my 13 mile/15-20 minute drive every morning and afternoon turned into a 55 mile/60 min trip each way. The ride is about half twisty back roads and half 4 lane slab.

I hear all the time "how do you stand that drive". Well, it's easy when I can take the bike, which is most days.

A bike that has fair wind/weather protection, great ergonomics, low maintenance, plenty of zip to be fun in the curves and still with long enough legs to run 80mph comfortable...and STILL do it all while getting 50+ mpg.

Every now and then I get the itch to get something new (mainly a new 1000), but I don't think I will find anything that does everything that I like about the DL650 V-Strom!
Spec and plugeye like this.
