New VStrom Owner

Hello All,

After 3 years on a CB500X I bought a 2019 VStrom 650 and am loving every minute on it. Use it for commuting but can't wait take her on tours this summer around North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee.

There are some fantastic roads in those states! I explored VA a bit while I was riding my SV650S and that experience made me realize I needed something more upright. Looks like you've got the right bike for the job!
