Of all things, after long looking for a good run with any of our fine bretherin in the HD crowd, out of the blue I had a VStrom 1000 jump me today. I pulled up beside this guy on this nice shiny VStrom at a light out on some open road. Being a nice looking fellow Suzuki rider I was just trying to say howdy when the light turned green and he hammered its. I mean he layed down flat on the tank and just snockered it as hard as he could. Taken by complete surprise he pulled at least 4 bike lengths on me right quickly. However when I caught him in second gear he slowly rolled off of it and faded way back into history as I cruised off by myself. I actually wanted to talk to the guy but he kept slowing and finally I just went on.
