New vstrom 650 owner
Well Ladies and Gents,
I pulled the trigger. I am now the owner of a 2011 Vstrom 650 with ABS (white mostly with some black). I will post pics at some point. I test road one at the Suzuki dealer and it was everything I had read about online.
Purrs like an electric bike. ABS. Upright riding position and not on my tailbone. I am still breaking it in...can't go over 5,000 rpm for 500 miles. I have about 180 miles since saturday afternoon when I bought it.
Price tag was about 8000 but with all the crazy fees and taxes..more like 9,000. Then they gave me 2,000 for Rocinante my Vulcan 750. Then I ordered up some mods like back off, modulator, heated grips, and disc brake pin lock.
With the maintenance plan and warranty about 200$ a month.
5 years unlimited mileage warranty. 3 years all maintenance parts and labor covered. All I have to do is ride! I will be going back to the dealer to swap out the corbin seat with stock and to get my gps mount back. I will be trying to sell one of you guys the corbin if you want. Also, I have contracts with Lance for Lance supports and cooler regulator pending. So if anyone wants to buy them I am cool with that. I also have the mutazu bags that were going to go with the Lance supports. I will be selling off all vulcan 750 parts and accessories at some point. Especially if you live near me ..you might get a great deal cuz i don't have to ship. Thanks for all the input on the Vulcan and new ride and I will surely be lurking of course. I figured I needed to trade the vulcan in before something occurred or i put way more miles on it. You guys have really helped me with this whole motorcycle addiction ...great therapy!
