BTW, Let us know about the differences between the V-Strom and the Bandit. I was thinking of getting a V 1k also but the Bandit seems more economical value wise.
I am looking to the Strom as a 2-up tourer for the wife and I. And since I live in Maine we have an abundance of rough paved roads and smooth gravel roads to ride. I also plan to start to do more multi day trips/camping I hope
I think the strom has a little more comfortable of a riding position for these rides.
The bandit will be my solo bike and probably see alot of my back and forth to work riding. As well as a little corner blasting.
Once I get the Strom and spring arrives I will post my comparo
