Vstrom 650 review
So far...I have enjoyed the vstrom ...but...i realize the benefits of having my shaft drive VN. I am already purchasing a set of tires at 15000 miles(which is high for a sport touring bike) and miss the ME 880's that a cruiser like the VN could take. Spending money every season...also...the sprockets and chain. I don't think i need new ones but i have ordered them so when i do i can get them replaced. Thats another couple hundred every season and a half....if you ride like i do. The bike is in the "sit up and beg" position...and runs like a top. 50 mpg easy and thats hard on the throttle.....Fuel injected.....insurance is expensive for the 2011..with abs. Especially if you get high coverage(which is recommended on MC). Just fyi. I will keep you in the loop.
