The infamous Guru of Vstroms, "Greywolf" has left us this week..........fallen to Pancreatic Cancer. I know a few on here have owned Vstroms in the past, and I'm sure you used Greywolf's knowledge base at one time or another. The guy knew every single nut and bolt on a Vstrom.......and their torque values!! he will be greatly missed............
Not sure that a NC will be any easier to pick up. I have a 16 Strom and I recently found out that my X-Adv is 10kg heavier I suspect that as such the NC will probably be the same weight as a Strom ?
It's never too late to have a happy childhood.
NC is much easier to pick up. My '07 Strom was only 22 pounds heavier but the weight is up high. Much lower center of gravity on the NC. I should clarify; I haven't dropped my new NC yet. I held the handlebars, squatted down & raised up before I bought it. No problem. I can't do that with the Strom. Still wearing a wrist brace from the last drop, which broke off a $104 starter button. Paid a guy to help me lift it.
