Cool Stepping Up

Hello All,

I am a new V-Strom rider in Newfoundland. Just looking to connect and gain knowledge of this machine. Recently upgraded from a 2011 KLR650 and got a great deal on a 2016 V-Strom 1000 ABS... the bike has never been ridden having come from straight from the showroom. Looking forward to the adventure days ahead.

Hello VR!
Congrats on 2 great choices:
1) Purchasing the DL1000ABS ( I love my '14)
2) Coming to this website.
Welcome, Sir!

Pretty much the exact scenario for me: sold my 2009 KLR and bought a new 2015 DL1000 off the showroom floor last Fall. I still ride on a lot of gravel roads, but my true off-roading days are behind me. There's no comparison between the two on the highway. I hope you wind up liking your Strom as much as I like mine.
