I'm in East Texas, near Tyler.
Just got here after picking up a 2014 DL1000 Adventure a few hours ago. I've been doing research on an adventure tour bike, first timer here. Decided on a V-Strom 1000. I found my super clean Adventure just a hour from me. Less then 6K miles, with a Sargent saddle and Scorpion slip-on. Also has the Holeshot EFI SuperTune Pro Tuning Box installed but without the snorkel modification.
After sport/sport-touring/touring/naked bikes I gotta admit an adventure tourer is a different beast. I like it though. I'll be using the Strom for a planned Pacific Coast Hwy ride next spring.
Already have some accessory add-ons planned. Windshield, topcase, radiator guard, throttle lock and mud guard to begin with. Looking forward to being a Stromtrooper for additional info on maintenance, accessory reviews, etc.
I haven't seen many Stroms in this part of the world, but I'll keep a sharper eye out now.
