 What is this bike about?

This adventure motorcycle is ready for a new home. I believe I am the first owner after the dealer. I bought this bike in July 2006 from a dealer in Florida, used it mostly in Georgia before relocating to Ohio where it has been stored and ridden only in the summers. The riding times have reduced and so the bike has to be sold. It was purchased used with only 5,795 miles on the odometer. The Vstroms with the 1000cc or 650cc are very popular in Europe. This one has been well taken care of by me. You will really appreciate the sixth overdrive gear on the highways especially if you are cruising at least 80 mph. It gives the rider an upright sitting position. Obviously, I am a big fan still but do not take my word for it just do a Google search for its reviews online.
