There's this thing on the V-Strom, it's called "The Chain". This may, in the beginning, be the cause of some consternation for you, but eventually, it will become just like brushing your teeth, but messier...... one would hope.
Do the suspension right away, so we don't have to tell you that the front end "clunk" is perfectly normal.
The brakes may not seem as authoritative, but they're good enough for stoppies, to do this it helps to be a 6'-4" Toronto woman.
You may want to put a Suzuki emblem near the instrument cluster to remind yourself what you're riding when people ask bout your new "BMW".
You will never accidentally disconnect a spark plug with a stiletto heel when dismounting from a V-Strom.
