Well, I was in a state of depression over not being able to make the Big Bend Bash...
so, I took a V-Strom 650 ABS for a test ride. My expectations were very low even though others that have had both the 650 and ST have said it's a great bike.
Wow, what a fun and light bike! The one thing I liked about my short ownership of the Super Tenere was the 150lb difference between the S10 and ST.. well, subtract an additional 100 lbs and you have the V-Strom.
I just may have to get the bike as a 2nd bike... It was that much fun.
