Joined up a while ago, just now getting around to posting. It's been a strange year.

I've been a rider since '97, gone through a variety of random bikes and after my beloved KLR was taken from me in an accident (rear ended by my dad on his Tiger 1050 while we were on a tour of all things) I picked up my '06 Vstrom. I had one as a rental in Austria and swore that if I had to get a new bike, it would be a Vstrom and after the KLR was gone... I made good on my pledge.

Lived in CA prior where it's always riding season so I was able to ride year round, and commute to work on 2 wheels every day. Did that for 12 years before moving to NC and changing jobs at which point I sorta stopped riding much. 20k/year down to 2k/year. I'm hoping to change that up a bit this year. Just got the 60k service done and I'm ready to roll.

Welcome to the site! NC is great for riding... sorta. If you're in the western or north western part of the state anyway. South east is pretty flat, but the mountains are only a day ride away. And there's some very enjoyable rides in the TN/NC/SC/GA/WV/VA region.

I was debating between a KLR and Strom for my first adventure bike. I'm picking up my first Strom today. Thanks for giving me added confidence in my choice!
