South Dakota Strommers

How many South Dakota Strommers are out there? I'm a noob in Rapid City. I saw another blue wee yesterday here.

Congrats on the new ride, Nic! Enjoy it!
Stay in touch. So we have at least two in the SD club.

Thanks, I am enjoying every minute of it so far. Learning a lot on it, I am pretty new to motorcycles, but I am picking it up fast it is a great bike to learn on.

There was another blue '07 that sold a week before I got mine in the SF area. Don't know who though, I am keeping my eyes peeled. I talked to Rice Suzuki when I was out there snowboarding in March, and they said that they don't get much interest in V Stroms but could get one. Legend in SF said that all of the sudden this year there have been a lot of people asking about them all of the sudden, and last year they sat on the same two with no interest! (could have been trying to push me into buying though.)

One of my dirt bike friends was riding on the Centenial Trail in the hills and was shocked to see somebody riding one on the trail, (maybe you?)

I am hoping to get out to the hills a few times this summer, maybe I will have to look you up and we could have our first annual SD club meeting

Later,
Nic

Hey Nic,

Sounds like you're off to a great start. I waited for a long time on Rice in Rapid and the shop in Sturgis, but I realized it wasn't going to happen. I found my 05 (only 900 miles) at a shop in St. Paul, MN. I'm very happy with it!

No, that wasn't me on the Centennial Trail. But do drop me a PM when you're headed to the Black Hills. I'll try to break loose and go riding with you.

Blade,
What did you ride b4 the strom, just curious?

I sold a 02 kawi zr-7s via powerbrokers a few years ago and it ended up in the rapid area. Man that was a nice bike, no strom but a nice re-entry bike.
