Hi. New to the V Strom community

Name is Jason and my new XT1000 is in a Air Canada jet on the way to Kenya. I expect to clear customs and registration in about 2 weeks. First Suzuki. Let’s hope it’s all you guys say it is! You’re all responsible for my selection of this bike!

I had zero idea it was so expensive to ride here. But honestly it’s probably the best place on earth. No traffic rules. No cops. No harassment. Pretty girls. Two dollar beers. 20 dollar hotel rooms. And endless dirt roads.

It’s Africa man. It’s a bit crazy and lawless but it’s not robbers on every corner. It’s just society and a different way of doing things. I’ve rode here for 12 years and never had anything but great experiences. Never been robbed or mugged. I’m a white dude on an expensive ride. I’ve even had moto police want to drag race me for laughs. It’s a great place. Don’t let the media discourage you.

Nah, just posting the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth as seen with Googley Eye Glasses. Mine are rose colored!
The differences in society are truly enormous.
