New Stromer in Kansas

Okay, I know. I could have picked out a better User Name. Oh well, so be it. Anyway, I am in Topeka, KS. I picked up the 05 DL1000 last night. And so far it has rained. UMM. Hope this message gets out and others in the area respond. Happy riding.

Hello From Garden City, Ks,

Picked up my new DL650abs in November........could not ride much this winter because of all the unusual ice and snow.........trying to make up for lost time now.

I sure like this bike, it is perfect for the kind of riding I do.

Don't see many Stroms in this part of the state.

Excellent!!!

No Way! I live on the SW side, near Berkshire. Do you ever ride Auburn road? I saw a 650 blasting north last week.

"Blue Wee"

If it was blue, it was probably me. I live a mile west of Auburn road and ride the Strom most of the time - errands - work - rain. I use to live in the 2500 blk. of Berkshire a couple of years ago. What color is your Strom?

It is a black DL1000 with luggage. Get THIS! I stopped in at the Suzuki dealership this a.m. and was chatting with the mechanic. I told him that I had just purchased a used Vstrom. He then told me about a KLR650 that was just traded in on a Vstrom 650 I asked, was the guy a fireman? HE SURE WAS! So, there sat your old bike, waiting for it's new owner. How great is that story. Anyway, I live near 40th and Gage, by the new Blackburn's nursery. I'll probably be out riding tonight. Who knows, maybe we'll cross paths. Also, I probably know 1 maybe 2 of the guys you work with. What station are you out of? Was in Wichita several months ago at the WMD Public Safety Sampling Course, and one of your LT's was there.

I work on Truck Company #3, downtown at 4th & Jefferson. I just ran across a website for bikers here in Topeka. Topekasportriders.com. If your out tonight, they are having a scavenger hunt starting at Fairlawn plaza at 9:00. Tomarrow is the Sunday for the Cassody ride. Sounds like alot may head down there. Finally, no rain in the forcast.
