Near Georgian Bay, Ontario.
Were you out in Surrey, BC with that bike a month or two ago? Saw one just like yours with identical side cases on Crescent Rd.
Steve: No haven't yet been out west on the Strom. One day...What bag is that? Is that a backrest attached?
Over my 300,000km on these bikes, for road biased tires, I really like the Michelin Pilot Roads for grip and longevity. I also like the Anakee 3's and the Metezler Tourance for 90/10 tires. Otherwise I like the TKC 80's for more dirt oriented riding involving little paved roads, even though they have excellent grip on the pavement (but poor tread life)Bought my 2010 V Strom for $5500CDN in 2018 a week before going on a 5200km trip to the Cabot Trail. Since then have gone to BC twice. Now have 33,000 km. Thought I should join here to get some ideas on tires, tank bag and whatever else comes to mind. As last years trip was supposed to be to the Yukon and the Dempster highway. Thanks to Covid it didn't happen. Hoping this year but not holding my breath.
