Hi.

Just signed up.
I just bought a left-over 2019 650 XT Touring edition.

Was looking at new and used Stroms and FJ-09s.
Test rode the FJ and thought it was a bit jerky and somewhat intimidating.
My last bike was a first gen SV650S and I haven't ridden in 13 years.

Until the other day, I wasn't even aware of the XT Touring version of the VStrom.
Local dealer had one left and I got a good deal on it.
The ride home proved I made the right choice - love the bike.

Hola, congrats on the new Wee. Having had a SV, you're familiar with the bike already.
Enjoy the ride.

Thanks!

Yes, love the 90 degree v-twin.
Perfect mid-size motorcycle engine.

I did the (15K?) valve adjust (2 shims changed) on my 2002 so no stranger to the engine, although way back then it had 1 spark plug per cylinder and carbs!
