Hello Y'all
Thank you for allowing me to take part in your enthusiasm.
I am reentering the riding world after a few years and the Strom is on my short list, along with Tigers, FJRs, Guzzi and a few other oddities.
I could use some advice for what to look for as I evaluate available bikes. Particularly V Stroms (1000s). Are there known problems? Should I avoid particular years, do I need to pay articular attention to specific areas of the bike?
I realize I'm asking a lot of you guys, and I thank you in advance.
Also,
I noticed a western lean to many of your members, anybody in the Northeast?
NY? Long Island?
Thanks, YellowHat

This site is a wealth of info about both the Wee and Vee. I encourage you to spend some time perusing threads/topics that sound relevant to your curiosities. Most of the question you likely have are addressed (sometimes at great length and detail) in threads that are already here. The sticky threads were a great place for me to start.
I was also able to glean many answers by visiting the "general discussion" and Wee/Vee specific forums here. By paging through these areas, you will be able to find the majority of the answers you're looking for... as many people coming here (myself included) sought that kind of info first. I am still very new here and not too adept with the search function (above)... else I would be more helpful and give some good links here to save you the time.
I applaud your tastes and hope you find what speaks to you... for me that was a K2 Vee... Would have liked to have had the option of a madstat bracket for my windscreen (later models), but not a biggee.

Cheers!
