I loved it, but it kept breaking and the wife said, no more. So I got a triumph bonneville in November. I just traded it in today, for what, the new vstrom 650.

I realized what I didn't like/wasn't used to was winding up the engine to go anywhere, where the 1000cc Beemer, would pull 5th gear from 20mph lugging to 100. But when I got the triumph, I had to wind it up still, so I figured why ride a bike that beats ya up and you have to wind it up. Out it goes. Back on a weestrom and I think I'll be satisfied. First impressions of the new one is 100% positive.

so, why do they call you idiot?
