You just cant seem to get away from the lil suzuki 650.. So why try? I mean I get it, so many new, shiny , powerful bikes on the market, one wants to experiment. But in reality, I think many of us have had that "One Bike" that we really loved, and wish we still had. I currently wish I still had my 300 ktm.. I LOVED that bike! I dont own a strom 650 , or any strom for that matter.. However I have read many, many stories about the bike, and about 99% are positive from happy owners.. Hard to part with a following like that!
