Hello From UK.

Hello everyone, new(ish) member lurking for a while. I bought the VStrom in Texas 18 months ago, purely because I was staying there for 7 days at a mates place and needed a ride. The price of a rental was incredible and I picked the bike up from a Pawn shop in Houston! (For not much more than rental costs).
Last year I returned to Texas and my buddy and I did nearly 4000 miles around the States taking in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming through Yellowstone then looping back around. (In 10 days!) I'll confess I'd never, ever considered a VStrom, ugly as sin in my opinion, but what a tool! The VStrom never missed a beat all trip however, and I grew to like it a lot. When an opportunity arose to have it shipped back, for not a lot of cash, I jumped at the opportunity. I only took it out of the van a few days ago in preparation for an MOT (annual test). I've changed the headlight unit, new tyres, (Bridgestone A41s) and the Two Brothers cans made it through the test.
Hopefully have it on the road soon DVLA (Licensing agency) depending.
See you out there somewhere. (You'll definitely hear it!)

All The World Could Be A Stage....

Welcome to the Forum. 4000 miles in 10 days, is good going and must have been quite an adventure.
