Title: Rush of blood to the brain
Post by: Himself on July 13, 2019, 19:58:52
Hello All,

Following a sudden rush of blood to the brain, it appears I am the owner of a red 2016 V-Strom 1000 complete with all of the bits that suggest I'm off on a world tour. Bits notwithstanding the test ride to set my mind at ease before buying, was a blast.

I'd ridden there on my 1000SX, which could not be any more different to the V-Strom. Both are heaps of fun yet in totally different ways. The V-Strom's gyroscopic front wheel needs a totally different technique to make it corner. And the screen on the V-Strom (Givi Airflow - two bladed thing) ... WoW ... Spot on 70MPH and not some much as 1 mph more - honest - with my visor up! Highly impressed.

Looking forward to discovering all the foibles and characteristics of a totally different bike

Cheers Himself

Moped - CB200 - GT380 - CB750 - GS750 (850 Yoski kit) - CB900 full of Moriwaki bits - GPZ1100 - GS1000S - Kids - Suzuki 650F - Tiger 1050 - Versys 1000 - and now the SX and the V-Strom

Hello and  :welcome2:. Ah yes! The SX. I had one. So good at what it does but the heart thought it was tedious and boring. Unlike your new steed.
