2007 Suzuki DL 1000 VStrom
Two years ago now our family lost our wonderful Sister, my brother Tim’s wife, Mary Ellen Bakan to breast cancer. Among other things Mary Ellen was our “pumpkin lady” in the fall. Always making sure everybody paid for their pumpkins just in case they “forgot” when they were leaving the field. She was a wonderful school teacher and very sweet lady.

Years before I sold my motorcycles when we had kids. But with Mary Ellen leaving our lives so early I decided I did not know what was around the next corner. So in 2007 I bought a brand spankin new Suzuki DL 1000 VStrom!

Yea we work a lot here on our farm, market and winery but I try and always remember to have some fun two. The reason I say “two” the VStrom is one of the baddest, most kick but TWO cylinder bikes on the road. Or in this bike case off road too as it can carve the “twisties”, climb the gravel roads, then hit the pavement and run up towards 140mph!

I feel the Need, the Need for speed.
