It looks like I should have limited the range and narrowed the steps.

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

When I just posted, 61% of riders were between 5'11 and 6'5. I guess the strom is a tall bike.

Overall height isn't all of the question as much as inseam with a taller bike like the Strom. I'm 5' 8+" but with a 29" inseam. My SO is ~2" shorter but has much longer legs.

I've been thinking about suing the city...








...for building the sidewalks too close to my bum

another poll

how about how many bikes have you owned?
how many bikes do you have (on the road and insured currently)?
do you drive a truck?
is your V-Strom your only means of transportation?

I'm a bit over 5'10" but shrinking a bit every year due to age.

Ride safe.
