Best night ever. I managed to scrape my foot peg on the way to my trail run tonight on my vstrom 1k. It is not the first time a peg has touched down on A bike, but it is the first time for that bike. The v-strom 1000 has really turned out to be a better bike than I even dreamed it would be. It is the best all around motorcycle that I have ever ridden and I think that all of the research and planning really payed out in full for that motorcycle. I would highly recommend a v-strom to anyone looking at a bike!
