Thumbs up Hello From Manitoulin Island

Just wanted to say hi to fellow stromtroopers. I've had many bikes over the years from sport, dirt, dualsport, to big adventure bikes. I just purchased my a 2010 Vstrom 650. Mostly stock, but I will want to add a few goodies, ie skid plate, frame guard, auxiliary lights (so I'm noticed by all the idiots looking at their phone while driving).

Looking forward to learning about the bike and inturn educating others.

V-Tom and Webfors like this.

Welcome!!!! My wife and i typically get up to the island once a year (not likely this year though). Maybe next year we can do the rail trail to Espanola!

Welcome aboard Smitty!

If you haven't already done so stop by in the Canadian section in Regional forums and say hello. Lots of Strommers in Ontario, some not so far from you.


My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
SMIDSY detailed report.
