Why V-Strom ?

Well Sunday I road 475 miles in 11 hours on New England poor quality 2 lane roads.

This included about 40 miles of dirt roads.

Who what else would do that and have a good time

(Please Ignore petty comments about grammer etc.)

What you posted is a big part of what is great about the V-Strom.. you can ride on just about any road and enjoy riding.

Thanks for sharing!

pedantic alert

Did the prose engender an emotional response ?

Take my for it if you haven't been on town roads etc in North New England

Of course others can play but my bargain hypermotard will lead most of the other big dogs

Was with a tiger 800 most of the way put could reel him in anywhere and seemed to be dragging with a 400 mile total

I realize you have been programmed with a guilt/success response but this is a Vstrom forum so

HU the F ray for us
