Local dealer was closing out his two. Price cut $500.

Gave me a reasonable deal on a used V-Strom, 21,000 miles, that had been taken apart and reassembled wrong, once too often in two too many factory recalls.

The last time resulted in a damaged stator; metal filings in the crankcase, and a warning that I'd have to flush out the crankcase several times.

That, on top of the general issues found with new Suzukis, which seem to be a grade below Chinese scooters anymore.

EFF THAT. The Wee-Strom is saleable in my area; and the dealer knew that. That's what he cares about. And mine looked purdy.

I'm out from under that, and fast...I was mad, after a trip was ruined with that failure. Consolation prize, I got this monkey-bike.

With generic saddlebags on it, it's actually reasonably handy around town.
