Strom curious in Texas
Hello all. I joined the forums because I am curious about the Vstrom 650. I currently have two bikes, a Harley Road King and a Kawasaki ZRX1200R. I'm starting to get the itch for something different. The Harley's a keeper for two up riding with the wife or solo rides. It's a very flexible bike but definitely not for off pavement. I love the power of the ZRX but it's sometimes overkill, has limited touring ability, and definitely no good off pavement. So if one bike had to go it would be the ZRX.
My brother just bought a KLR and is talking about doing some non-pavement riding. Not dirt bike type riding but more like maintained gravel roads, firm two tracks, etc. I struggle to get solid use out of the two bikes I currently own and can't really justify adding a third. So if I buy something else I'd like it to be tour capable, sort of sporty, and competent for light off pavement use.
I've heard alot of good things about the DL650 but have not ridden one. So I figured I would check out the forums and get the inside scoop from the experts.
