Suzuki V-Strom DL1000

"A place where the horizon is defined by tall trees instead of tall buildings. Where grass doesn't just grow in a park, Where animals don't only live in a zoo. Where the wind blows clear ands strong and doesn't carry the smell of a traffic jam.

A place like Africa. From meandering tracks through broad plateaus bordered by the Drakensburg Mountains of the coastal (sic) near Durban, South Africa. To hard-packed switchback roads carved into the side of agorge in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. From vast savanna grasslands to towering peaks. Now there is a motorcycle inspired by that dream, and built for adventure. Named for its V-twin engine and the stream of wind, or "Strom" in German. It is called the Suzuki V-Strom 1000. Ready to live the adventure in your mind."

Okay so this is just the marketing hype for the V-Strom. Want to know what we wrote about it? Well, here it is, the 2002 Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 writeup....

As usual, post your meanderings, whims and retorts below.
