Do you have a prosthesis?
I've still got all my stuff so I'm trying to think how I'd ride a V-Strom witout my left leg, shifting notwithstanding, and it would seem doable.
It's the starting, stopping and getting on and off that I would think are tricky.
I suppose you could have some sort of actuator for the kickstand. Also, I would really practice low speed manovers to minimize the need for stopping and possibly finding an invisble pothole, etc.
Make the bike work for you. Making sure the bike is were it needs to be for departure before you park will be crucial.
Lowering the seat and suspension couldn't hurt either.
Trading the V-Strom in, if the emotional attachment allows, for something more manageable is always an option.
Best of luck,
