Hello riders----I have a few ????? I have had alot of bikes in the last 50 years. I have been riding a Goldwing for a while now and I need a smaller bike,because of my medical contion.I rode a used 02-dl1000 today and I realy liked it. I know there is a big differance between the two. Can anyone tell me how they handle in the rain???and do you think this two big of a switch for me??? I sure like the power of the vstrom. Thanks Chuck

I don't really like any bike in the rain. Especially with all the cars around. But I think rain handleling is largely a function of what tire you are running. That said, I am still running the OEM trailwing. I have gotten cought in a couple rain storms. Everything worked well. Much better than my KZ did. But again, the tires have lots to do with that. They are a great fun bike. Not the tank your goldwing is, but very respectable in every catagory you can thing of.
