Rolled 25k today

I know it's not much to brag about but when I rolled 25k it felt like a birthday for the bike.

3.5 years
3 rear tires
2 front tires
1 chain
1 set brake pads

I've been as far north as Jasper and as far south as Death Valley.

My bike has never let me down, but I have let the bike down.... 6 times

The funniest time was when I pulled up in some gravel to take a picture. I put my foot down but lost my balance. Over goes the heavily loaded bike. So I take off some luggage and right the bike. But I had forgotten to put the kickstand down! And the bike falls over in the other direction!

That's two drops in five minutes.

Oh, and one minor accident. No big deal.
I like my VStrom more than ever.
