So just curious I have been researching VStroms and I want a bike with ABS and the is the only one in my $8k budget. I know I could pick up a nice Wee with farkles in this range. But I am worried about power. I am a big guy as you can see in my thread title. Add in full luggage, trunk and panniers and I will be pushing 300lbs. Add in my wife for those once in awhile rides add another 115lbs. Will this bike have any performance at all or will it feel like a big scooter underneath me. Unfortunately for me I live in St. George UT and won't be able to test ride to know it's capabilities. Any and all info appreciated... Here is a photo of me sitting on a new Wee at the local dealer. Also do they differ from year to year? How far should I be willing to go buy buying used?
