Stromtroopers vs. V-Strom Riders International?

I recently stumbled across V-Strom Riders International Group. I haven't managed to register there yet, so I haven't formed any opinion of it.
Whenever I see seemingly duplicate sites like this, it makes me wonder if there's a story behind it.
Does anyone here know anything about that other site, like which was created first, and why there are two?

VSRI used to be a great site when John Weldon, the guy from whom I learned much of what I know, was running it. Since John died, traffic has pretty much died out. It's still the greatest library of information on V-Stroms made before 2010. When John died, he sold the rights to VSRI to Verticalscope, the site owner here, for $1 so VSRI would be kept up. I still answer a lot of questions here by posting links to VSRI. A few people here are likely to be the ones who respond the new posts at VSRI. The sites are in cooperation rather than competition.

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

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

Thanks, I was wondering about that myself.
