Guy's. Answering the poll is enough unless you want to brag about how well you are doing in that department.

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

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

Interesting. Almost a third of us are over 230 lb. A factor in handling? Tire wear? Performance and braking?

6'3" and 214.5lbs ...damm scale keeps changing numbers so it's hard to tune the suspension just right.

Clovett at 6 inches tall, you have a llllloooonnnnggggg reach to the bars, mcuh less the foot pegs

6' 1", 205, 43 - I would love to drop about 15 lbs. Maybe we can all start a Weight Watchers group. We could me around the country, ride the VStroms, drink beer, single malt, and beef. Then see how badly we change this poll in a year!

2006 V-Strom 650 Pegasus
Its either: the journey, the destination, or both. Just remember to have fun.
Previous bike: 2000 Kawaski Vulcan 750 - traded for V-Strom
