Hard to believe, but since I got my Strom last October I have never seen another rider on one. Truthfully I don't recall ever seeing any rider on one live and in person, but I'm sure there must have been some on one of the occassions I was around the pumps at Deal's Gap, or at Two Wheels Only, back in the days before I knew what a V-Strom was, other than that tall strange looking bike. I feel very unique. I see guys everywhere on choppers and cruisers, and sort of feel sorry for them. I doubt they know what they are missing.
