650s in New England?
I'm im lust with the V-Strom 650 right now, but I can't find one at a single dealer in New England for tire-kicking.
(I called about 30 and found one dealer that did a region-wide search for me - found 3 total in New England - one in Vermont and two in Maine - but as I am still in the tire-kicking phase, I didn't want to have him transfer one in and he declined to tell me where they were located. Kept calling around but wasn't able to locate them and finally gave up.)
So I'm curious - are there any V-Strom 650 riders in the New England area who would be willing to let me peep your bike/sit on it to see how it feels? I'm a woman and I'm vaguely concerned about the height/weight. I can deal with a BMW F650GS just fine - the seat height is theoretically the same but I hear the Stroms are a bit more top-heavy so I want to make sure I can handle. I'm 99% sold on the Strom - totally want one - but I can't really be serious about buying one until I've sat on it.
Any New Englanders wanna help me out?
(I'm in Boston, but willing to ride to you A) because it's an excuse to get out on the bike and go someplace and B) you'd be doing me a huge favor.)
