Hello internet! I am a proud new owner of my first motorcycle and I chose a 2013 v-strom 650. I am pleased and have put around 350 miles in 2 days(went from the dealership straight to the interstate for a 180 mile ride home). I'm just saying hello to all you fellow Strom riders out there and welcome any tips and advice. Hope to see you all out on the road!

I also have the same year and engine with 40,000 kms. Although the VStrom is capable of interstate speeds all day its best on those other roads with lots of twisties. I toy with the idea of another bike but every time I come back from a trip the idea has faded away. Two additional and useful attachments I put on the bike were the SW Motech centre stand and crash bars. The centre stand allows for easy chain and other maintenance and the crash guards for the embarrassing tumble from a stall and 'miscalculations'. Have fun! Cheers.

Hola from LaLa land. The 5th largest economy in the world.
Where you at?
I used to complain about a 25 mile commute to the BMW dealer. 180 miles seems like you live in the boonies or at least a dealer desert!

You'll be very happy with the bike. Most of us here are! I personally think the V3 is the one to get right now from a tech and price advantage.
