Welcome! One of the most surreal experiences I have ever had was riding my Strom down 101 on the Oregon coast at 3 AM as part of a 27 hour Victoria-Sacramento nonstop ride. And good choice- I have a YZF600R myself, but anything beyond 3 hours and I'm a geriatric coming off of that thing. Stroms sure are comfy!
"Definitely do not sit on a DL1000. Big mistake. You'll end up buying one. Happened to me. True story."
"Purchasing a V-Strom from a Harley dealer does have poetic justice. Almost like removing a talented child from a meth house."
"I'm for moves that will help people get over the idea that it is ever okay to drink and drive."
