I will give you a shout. Figured if I have at least 3 weeks until my suspension gets back, might as well test it.

Advance auto probably has both also. They charge a deposit but no fees.

2012 or 13 strom
Hey, anyone in NOVA ( near warrenton) have a '12 or '13 weestrom I can fondle?

I'm looking at getting one over the tiger 8, but don't have the time to get out to Romney cycles for a test ride. Coleman doesn't do demo's on them at last request. I really just want to get a good feel for it and some non-sales dude input.

PM me if you've got one and I could come out and check it out.

Absolutely, it's a pretty white one just starting out life. It needs a good home.

You could fondle mine, but I'm in Virginia Beach.

I have a '12 orange one and I love it. I was considering the Tiger and F800 as well and in the end couldn't quite justify the extra 4k (wABS) for those bikes given the extra maintenance costs and stuff I might not be able to do myself, especially the BMW (been there done that). Limited dealerships for parts while traveling and the cost of farkels also played into it.

I test rode a Tiger (non XC) before I bought the VStrom and it was nice, but not quite the magic carpet I thought it might be.

The VStrom is certainly lacking a good bit in the horsepower department compared to both of those, so it's not really a fair comparison. But any bike that will go fast enough to scare the piss out of me WTO near redline is fast enough for me and the VStrom does that.

I will say it's a simple bike, some of the fasteners and metal finishes are on the cheap side, it's certainly built to a price point. But is's a fun platform to start with and there are endless accessories available for it. They've been very reliable and maintenance is fairly basic and simple. I was a little surprised at the difficulty level to remove the body parts to remove the tank and access the air filter.

For what I need a bike to do, the VStrom does all of it and is a hoot to ride!

I was pretty heavily involved in Scouting at the council level before I left VB. I know the ranger at Pipsico pretty well. Let me know and I'll put you in touch. They do rent out to external groups a decent amount and with 3 separate camps there is a lot of room.

Thanks, my Son is an Eagle and works the Camp each year. I'm pretty sure we'll be able to get in. I sent is a request through the new web page and am waiting to hear back. Otherwise, I'll dial his cell and arrange a visit to discuss when I return later this week.

Are y'all sick of my rally posts yet?

Anyway, Sandblast is looking for volunteers. It's the absolute best way to see the event other than participating. They have a small reimbursement program for people that travel to volunteer. They also feed you. It's an awesome way to check one out and get a feel for how one runs if you are considering racing one in the future. The organizers and the teams really love the volunteers!!!! I personally made it a point to thank each and every volunteer I came across, and just about every other rider was doing the same. If I could have, I'd have bought them all the beverage of their choice.

There are so many prophetic quotes in those subtitles, I don't know where to begin!

I think he could have used a few more meters......

There may be an S10 in my near future.........

And you need to get started working on getting some O'Range added to your line up......If not I may just have to open my own dealership.
