Suzuki V-Strom DL650

I purchased a new Suzuki V-Strom DL650 in March 2008 after doing probably too much research. I set out to write a review of the motorcycle, because I had not found anything lengthy or adequate. The magazines tend to be too technical, and cite the manufacturers specs. So, I wrote a review, and then another one. At more than 35,000 miles on the bike (Dec. 2010), I have not changed my mind.
