Jachew2 in June 2008 with her new V-Strom.
And earlier this year because we needed to get out for a bit.
Which bring us to the present day with the recent addition to our garage.
So our time with the V-Strom has come to a close. We are pleased the Strom has found a new home with a very nice gentleman just getting back into motorcycling after a few years away. We have met him and spent some time talking motorbikes, and of course about the V-Strom.
Before she bought her Strom, I told jachew2 if the Strom did not work out for her, we would look at other motorcycles or, we could keep the Strom and continue to ride together. So, after a discussion in the garage and a few glasses of vino, she agreed to start looking for another motorbike. We are fortunate to live in our area which is rich with dealerships and after a demo ride on the 650GS, she was hooked. Her confidence increased immediately and she was hooting and hollering (heard her on the intercom and had to smile to myself) as she took off for her demo ride.
A few days later we went back to the dealership and during the course of our visit we met the new owner. We left the Caribouís, skid plate, crash bars, and centerstand on the Strom. Ultimately we gave the new owner the tankbag and made a very fair deal for the Givi screen, Madstad brackets, and the Givi topcase. The Strom is kitted out and ready to go.
He is aware of this site and I am sure with time he will introduce himself to the forum.
We wish you all the best, and hope you have a great riding season.
