Stroms everywhere SW Colorado

5/4/14 Going from Montrose, CO to Flagstaff, AZ.

I saw two V-Stroms in Montrose. One had all black luggage top & sides, the other was a newer Strom in white.

Saw another between Montrose and Ridgway.

Another between Rico and Cortez.

Then another between Cortez and Shiprock.

Who are all you??????

I wish one was mine. I love that area but my body no longer enjoys getting me there.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

I've honestly considered starting a motorcycle rental shop out of Montrose, and carrying only V-Stroms.

Maybe one of these days I'll pull the trigger on it.

That would be a good place for a motorcycle rental. But if it was me I would offer a larger selection then just v strom. Maybe some harleys, crouch rockets or even some can am spyders (if you want to consider those motorcycles). Maybe a few scooters. I bet you could make some good money if you do tour rides.
I still want to know who those 2 riders where that tried going over Vail pass when it was snowing, high winds with blowing snow and icy roads and want to know what they where thinking. They only made it to the top then had to go the rest of the way an an ambulance

I'd like to do primarily V-Stroms, maybe BMWs. Funds would limit me from getting any Harleys or Spyders. Plus I'm familiar with the V-Strom, they're super reliable, and typically attract the type of people I wouldn't mind dealing with. I don't think I'd ever rent the rockets, I can see the news headline already from that "inexperienced rider on rental bike flys off cliff near Silverton".
