    Started off with a litre bike (ok, it was only a Virago, but hey, it was my first bike), then went down to a ZX-6R, but I finally got back over the litre mark, and then some...

    Nice choice. The bandit is a hell of a bike and up until I test rode a Vstrom, it was in my top 3 of must haves.

    love it. she's a little heavy, but I'm a big guy so that doesn't really bother me. she has power everywhere which is a nice upgrade over the Ninja. nice and comfy too, especially with the Corbin seat that came with her, though I could use a bar snake cause the handle bars shake pretty good, which I've been told is common.

    one of the things I love about it is the interchangeability with other Suzuki's. Already have Busa brakes for it. Looking to get Gixxer front end, Busa shock and other goodies.

    Exhaust/jet/pod filters are #1 on the list of things to do. She's pretty choked and from what Ive heard, that alone will gain a relatively big chunk of power.

    How is it a downgrade? Kind of depends on the kind of riding he does now doesn't it?

    If I ride miles upon miles (and I often do) it wouldn't be a downgrade to go from an MV F4 to a VStrom

    yup, when my riding plans come for a decent amount of long distance touring and the rest being stop and go city riding, a comfy tourer with a bullet proof engine that has torque and power everywhere and tons of potential is definitely a downgrade over a older, peaky, ratty ex-trackbike with questionable reliability whose potential has mostly been topped



    love it, thanks :bigthumb:
