A little more tinkering for a bike with a soul, is a worthwhile tradeoff.

The VStrom, if I might sum it up for myself personally, always felt like riding a wooden traffic barricade with a GREAT motor, forever riding AROUND the bike's inadequacies, rather than feeling conjoined with a beloved mount.

Soon to be ad in FM:

"2004 DL1000 for sale. Best bike I ever owned, perfect in every way. Great suspension. I love this bike, but after eight years of bliss, unfortunately I have to sell it."

Congrats on the new (to you) XT. I'm not a Harley guy but I love Erik's creations.
