Well, first of all.....it isn't a matter of ONE or the OTHER......I really would love to have a motorcycle AND a trike.....and the trike is mainly to convince my wife to get out with me.
Before the VSTROM, I had (still have) a Suzuki Savage and a Kymco People 250 scooter. (and a couple of moped for my wife and I) The VSTROM will replace those two (which I will
sell in the spring) and well, the trike will have to wait for now.

Really quite simply really......well, sort of an addiction too.

Thanks,



It doesn't help......in fact, I am "almost" flat footing the VSTROM, and I'd like a little more than I have....so I am probably going to work to lower it at least 1/2"......but I like the higher seating position on the STROM....so I think it will be good. Besides, my hip issue does make it difficult to swing my leg over, but the main issue comes with the foot peg to hip distance because I have more pain with my hip at a tighter angle....but the VSTROM seat is a good distance from the peg. I will be lowering the suspension, not the seat. (per se)

Those are getting popular up here in the boonies. They seem to be pretty good light touring bikes and can run through the dirt as well. It should be lots of fun.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Que. I have a friend of mine whose boyfriend was in a strom club. I'll get you the info as they have lowering "bones" and other cool miss for the strommy. Very reliable bike , does have some charging.system issues , but that's a Suzuki thing. Not a real big deal but something to be aware of if its a used unit
