Hey guys, I just picked up my 2014 V Strom 1000 and I absolutely love this machine. This will be my 3 motorcycle, the 2 previous were sport bikes. I needed something more comfortable for my shoddy back but could have just as much fun on. I served 5 years in the USMC and now attending Embry- Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach for Aviation Maintenance. I look forward to being part of this group and talking to everyone.
