ever since i drove that dl650, i'm very unhappy at not having one.
the days until i will buy mine are indeed going to be very miserable... only 4 months to go...

i daydream about it all the time, and it's all i can think about
(well, that and food and sex, but in that order)

am-i sick to want my vstrom so much?
does it go away once i buy it?

i mean i remember wanting a ducati, but i didnt want it that much. wanting the wee, actually hurts...

It's normal. Well, as long as it doesn't hurt when you wee.

Unfortunately the disease mutates into farkleosis at varying degrees of severity depending on the patients ironus butticus and their resistance to tightfisted spousetilitis. There is no cure.

Yep, you're weird...

No. You are completely, utterly abnormal. That is the sole reason you belong here just like the rest of us.

If it weren't for abnormal, this forum wouldn't exist.

V-Stroms ROCK!


:p

Yes, you are abnormal.... but so are most of us here ;)

I was in the same boat... I couldn't wait to get one and put myself into even more debt to get one, but I'm so glad I did... Who needs to eat when you can ride with your visor up? ;)

Normal?

You could be stuck over in Iraq and have the bike in the garage and never ridden it. I will be home in a couple of months but it's what sustains me. Knowing my first day back, I'll be riding my Strom. Talk about anticipation......

You will likely find that you have an allergic reaction to the Strom once you get it.. or at least your work may think so as you call in sick for the first few days. The reaction likely won't go away, either, but you will find ways to live with it.

Just wondering when you're coming back. I'll be going through the Springs in June. I am going to try to hook up with an old friend in Rye and then maybe stop to see my brother in the springs on my way through but I could probably spend a little extra time their to go for a ride.

I'll be going through on my way to Minneapolis to met up with a friend from Kennewick, Wa. We are going to spend a day in Minneapolis to look up a friend from the service and then go to Chicago for the Mother Road (Route 66) Rally, hook up with some people there and ride what's left of Rt 66 from its start in Chicago to its end in Santa Monica.

If you want to hook up PM me.

I may also try to hook up with a few members from the GS Resources group while I'm there. That is a site that caters to the old GS Suzukis.

You sorry, sad sack of... oh, wait, I was pretty much the same way. Never mind.

Ah, in a bunch of years, when this future bike is all worn out with a million miles, you'll have long forgotten this feeling and instead you'll be sick over your lust for the next bike.

Time flies...

One of the nice things about owning a Strom is the next bike you get is easy to pick........a newer version! This is a disease you most likely won't recover from.
