Ten Year Strom/Stomtrooper Anniversary !

I just realized that on July 23rd I had my 10 year anniversary of joining here. That was also the one year anniversary of getting my 2015 DL1000 (which turned over 50,000 km on the way to work this morning!.)

The 26th of July was also the 10 year anniversary of bringing home my first Strom.. my 2006 DL650.

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

That's a pretty good portion of the life of the site. It began 5-28-2003. Happy anniversary.

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

Congratulations. Now go buy yourself something made out of tin or aluminum. I'm sure certain farkles would qualify.

I don't think it will take that long.

My total (owned) Strom mileage is a hair over 392,000 km (I have a hundred or two km's riding a 2011 DL650 on Santorini in Greece that I am not counting.)

Got my 650 Strom in 2006, so I am also celebrating. It's the longest I've ever owned a single bike. Except for a two year period while in the Marine Corps in Okinawa, For 63 years I've ridden motorcycles !!!!
