V-Strom at the track

Hi all, I am looking at a V-Strom 1000 as my next bike and would like to hear any comments from riders who have had a fun day at the track on theirs.
General comments, anything on tyres, suspension, ground clearance, gearing etc.....top speed???
All comments appreciated, Thanks!

Forum member Garandman has taken his DL650 to the track, he has since found a dedicated track bike in a Suzuki SV650. If he doesn't chime in, you may want to send him a PM.

Have fun,

If you are even remotely interested in track days the Strom is the wrong bike for you. Not saying people haven't done it, it's just so far removed from what the Strom is meant to do it's not even in the same zip code.
