I've been looking to get a vstrom 650 for some time now. I have got insurance liked up which, in Ontario, is a miracle someone my age (22) it's getting to the point where I don't want to wait any longer in to the summer, dealers all around have the bike I want but NONE of them will let me ride one.

I am in Eastern Ontario (Belleville), where would I be able to try one of these.

I've only used dirtbikes and a a 250 Honda Rebel so this is a pretty big step up, not sure buying one with out trying it is a good idea.

Anyone else have suggestions?

I've purchased mine from Carsons in Perth. It's quite a drive from you, but
the dealer allowed me to test drive it.

That was back in 06, and may things could've changed now.

It's rare for dealerships to offer test rides (except BMW, it seems that they're cool with it). Most Craigslist sellers will offer a test ride if you show up with the cash.

Just bought a 2009 VStrom 650, saw it all assembled today, insurance doesn't kick in till tomorrow. Never did get a test drive (Although Carsons in Perth did have a 1000 they would let me try, thanks babooka).

Can't wait till tomorrow.
