Yes there are a few more entries this week than usual due to rainy weather and relaxing at Away in the Country.

Mike Fritz a fellow rider just got a new Suzuki V-Strom 650. He had a 1989 Yamaha Virago that was approaching 100,000 km. He decided a change was in order and wanted more than just a cruiser. He wanted off-road capability.

He has already put 1000 km on the bike in the first 4 days and I am certain that many of those kilometers were off road in the woods or making tracks through farmers fields.

Here is Mike’s take on his new bike.
