sweet, congrats! this is good. more comfort and capability with plenty of room to grow. I'm thinking there is some riding in your future for sure. today just hopped back on my bike for the first time in a few weeks... had broke my foot and doctor was making a big issue out of not riding the bike. (ok so I snuck a couple short rides in just don't tell the doc) I have a clear go now and am back on and thinking I need to get a couple more miles out... perhaps a long weekend trip to Colorado is in order.
edit: yet another nice aspect of this is the mpg... even at $4 a gallon you can ride without feeling too guilty about it. I think your vstrom must get in the high 50's at least.
