I saw a silver Vstrom in Pendleton, Or around 1:00PM on 2/17/07. Saw another while I was leaving Helix, Or - Black with matching luggage. The third Vstrom was seen in the Tri-Cities, Wa on the same day. Lots of bikes out for that day due to the record heat. Pendleton set a new record of 68*F. Awesome day for a ride .
