Welcome, Alan! Yes, you HAVE found a fantastic resource for all things V-Strom. I've been visiting the site for less than a year and have found an answer to every question I've had regarding our bikes. Lots of knowledge and friendly people here. There are a few characters, to be sure, but mostly very helpful members.My name is Alan and I am new to the forum. I have been a 2008 DL 650 ABS owner since 11/01/2008 when I bought her new. Just recently stumbled across this site. Looks like I have found a wealth of information on a great bike.
