Every bike is a compromise. There are faster bikes, there are better bikes for dirt, there are better bikes for the twisties, there are better bikes for touring 2UP... but when I am going to do all in one ride then I really appreciate having the V-Strom. Currently, my preference of the two models is the DL650.

I'll be the first to admit that I fantasize about owning a GS-1150 Adventure, so I really don't want to pit the V-Strom against the other choices out there. I just think it is a great bike in of itself. I have been very happy with the bike (I've put on close to 16,000 miles since last February).

I like to think of the V-Strom as a general purpose motorcycle for the curious...
