Apparently you guys don't mind the whirring and vibration from the knobs on the pavement?? I put a set of S 705's and really notice it. TKC's? Yikes! It would be OK if you rode 90% off road I suppose.

Is he talking about the massage feature? I love it.

I put Kenda Big Blocks on for a bit, and sure they were a little rough, but they kicked ass in the dirt. Totally worth it...

No, it was in the news.

Some law enforcement forces down in Mexico use Stroms, I think that's one of them.

can't believe that I never posted in this thread...I have been remiss.

A couple of shots from the road up to Cerro Gordo...we were chasing the sunlight.

Thanks valongbeard! I felt that plenty of close-ups of farkeled Stroms already had been posted. Really like the atmospheric feel to both of those pics.

Although there is barely a V-Strom in this picture from the Kelso Dunes, I dig the feel in this one too.

2012 V-Strom 650 project


Have yet to test it, but I thought that there may be some interest in this project, especially the wire wheels.

Suzuki Canada are showing it in their booth at the upcoming Canadian Motorcycle Shows if you're in the Great White North.

More info at cmgonline.com. Will try and answer any questions here too.
