Latest & greatest: I own the latter
The following is a FWIW - nothing more. All you gear heads will be bored silly.
EICMA this…EICMA that…thank goodness I own my DL650. Ad nauseum – over and over again I read about all the new and improved motorcycles soon to come out. Teaser videos. Spy shots. Bigger – faster – better? OK – I get it. Marketing and sales. Profits.
Better? Perception or reality? Depends on which side of the fence you are standing on. If you are looking for bigger, faster, more gadgets, the motorcycle world is your treasure chest. Been there – done that. Happy for you. Maybe I’m just a little tired of all the hype???? New paint and graphics – new beak – new instrumentation – more cc’s – the wheels still just go ‘round & ‘round. Physics in the corners and highway speed limits still apply – always will.
If all this sounds bitter or judgmental – sorry about that - you missed my point. Point being – Strom owners unite! Our Strom’s will do all or almost all the “new” will – competently – with impeccable dependability. And why I so much enjoy riding one of THE greatest motorcycles of all time
. Grom or Wing - I’ll ride with you anytime. Just try to keep up – OK? Thanks.
Just my .02… nothing more. Be safe out there everyone.
For those who own or are considering a new or used Strom - Welcome to the Borg. Resistance is futile.
