A Wee. heh heh... Sounds funny to me to say that. Nice bike. Bigger than I thought it would be. I sat on it and could not put my feet flat on the ground but I could put both feet down enough to feel stable. My wife hopped on back and came away from the experience a little more receptive to the bike. It was an '11 model. I'm wondering if I should wait for the '12 model to come out. Sounds a little improved but... They have a special now $199 for the hard bags if you buy an '11. That includes the mounting hardware. Hmm... Very tempting. Not sure exactly what the point of this post is. Just rambling some about my first personal encounter with a V-Strom today. I was impressed.
