Just rode it out of the showroom floor yesterday. The dealership folks were all agog with this beautiful machine. It replaces my 2012 V-Strom 650 ABS---which I instantly sold to a friend. I truly loved that bike; but this bike...man what can I say? It's astounding. I really like the grey & white color scheme, too. I've only ridden it about 100 miles, and the DCT is slick as deer guts on a doorknob. I have a bit of learning to do with all the custom settings, and getting used to a slightly taller and heavier bike. I already have my sights set on riding the Great Divide this summer. But lots of smaller trips before that for sure. Looking forward to studying the ATForum now that I actually OWN one!
