Do not get a V-Strom to ride trail.

I have a V-Strom.

I also have two other bikes for when I want to ride trail.

Not saying that nobody has ever ridden a V-Strom down a trail. The local Suzuki dealer says he loves it when I ride my V-Strom on trail, because afterwards I come in for parts.

If you don't know what you are doing, don't buy a V-Strom for trail riding. If you do know what you are doing, you already know not to buy a V-Strom for trail riding.
