Thank you for all the kind comments.

I just recently purchased the GS (last weekend) to finally take the BMW plunge again (sold my RS)

I absoloutely love my Strom and have such a close bond with it. There were times on this trip that I would have much rather had the Strom in tricky spots with crazy wind than the GS. My only complaint with the vstrom is the chain drive. I would lube it often and adjust as necessary but when riding 1000mi days in the rain and dirt, it really becomes just one more thing for me to bother with. I was never at a loss for power (except above 10k) but the GS has always been my dream bike.

Enter now to buy my Strom from this trip. Shameless plug in FM below
