Looking for a 1000

Hi all. I am an older guy, who likes to make my own way. HD rider, but I want to go down to the coast and into Mexico. I think the 1000 fits the bill. I would like to buy a new one if I can find one, but if not, the newest and nicest one I can find. Any help would be appreciated.

I live in Plano(Dallas), Tx and am open for riding anytime. Peace.

Don't discount the 650 as a capable tourer for the job as well

Check out the threads on 650 v 1000 Stroms.

The Wee outsells the Vee at about 15 to 1

Either one will do a top job for the ride

look on ebay they have some new ones.

As far as the constant comments about the Wee outselling the Vee 15:1 I attribute to several things:
1 Cost
2 ABS
3 Don't need a bigger bike or don't ride at high speeds
4. slightly lighter

I don't factor in off the road use as neither is ideal. If that is what you are looking for look at the DRZ , Husky or KTM.
The great thing is you can get the Strom in 2 models ( or at least could we will see about 2011) and pick the one based on how you like to ride.

There were at least 2 new 09's in Indiana. Any Suzuki Dealer should be able to hook you up.
