Bought 2 - 2009 DL650's in 2012. Strictly for pleasure cruising. We live in Central Oregon, amazing roads & scenery & the VStrom is PERFECT for our terrain! Spent 3 weeks on them, down the coast of California & back up through the Sierra's. My husband bought a 2012 DL1000 last year, he spends more time in California for work and wanted the extra power. He made the mistake of leaving it home with me and now we have two 650's for sale. I just got my 2012 DL1000 last Saturday. We found it on Craigslist in Eureka, CA. Over 300 miles from home. I met my husband there, he had a truck and trailer from working down south. I ended up riding it all the way home. I LOVE VStroms!!!
So, that's 2 - 2009 650's
AND 2-2012 1000's
and yes, we love to chat, didn't see the directions, woops!
Pat, do you think it might be time for a new updated Poll?
I still have my 2006 DL650 but don't ride it, sold the 2012 DL650, and have the 2015 DL1000 but I can't change my answers. I am sure there are a number of other riders that have changed their bikes as well. I woudl be curious how the 2014+ DL1000 is doing since its launch.
Perhaps there should be an "other" spot in there as well as there are a number of users here that have sold their Stroms and moved on to other bikes but enjoy being here (I have thought for a long time that "Strom" is more a state-of-mind that a type of bike.)
