Good morning, I bought a 2014 V-Strom 650 a few weeks ago. I almost bought one last year after realizing my CBR500R I bought in 2016 after a 20 year hiatus in riding (best divorce present to myself ever) wasn't being very kind to my back. And I put 20k miles on that bike in 3 years. I'm a few hundred miles in on the V-Strom and it's SO much more comfortable. I'm really looking forward to being able to explore some more on this one. I have a few friends with ADV bikes that always had to stick to pavement when I was with them. Not any more! It's already got some Kenda knobbies on it and I just got some crash bars, bark busters, heated grips, ram mount for my phone, and a skid plate should be here this week. Contemplating some bar risers too.
