Wow!



Thanks for all these great posts. I have just about convinced myself with no real logic whatsoever that the "best" thing to do is of course keep my Vulcan Classic and just buy the 06 V-Strom DL1000...



Everyone I know thinks I'm nuts of course - goin' through a midlife crisis - but I think my fellow riders here do understand!!



Thanks - any other thoughts bring em' on!

Wow - so you have the 06 FJR 1300 and you prefer the V-Strom 650? I assumed the FJR was the end all --- is it an issue of weight and handling or something else?



Thanks,

Brian

Just as a matter of follow up - because I started this thread...



I bought a 2006 Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 !



This bike is absolutely a blast to ride - working with my dealer to get the FI mapping just right but it is killer!



So now I have the Kawasaki 1500 Classic and the V-Strom - both great and both totally different!



Thanks,

Brian
