Rusty - have you checked out the off road vstrom thread? May be what you're looking for. I had my Wee back to the mountain yesterday. Roads too rough for passenger cars, but not bad enough for 4wd; couple stream crossings. With a set of Anakees or Shinkos the Wee does well enought for anything in my area. My skills are much more limiting than the bike.

Been contemplating spokes. More ground clearance would be a huge improvement overall for my type of riding.

Custom made by the first owner. Unbelievably burly. Thicker aluminum that any other brand I've ever seen, hard-mounted to the frame in 3 places each side, plus steel bars across the back. I've had 5 serious offers from other V-Strom riders to buy them off my bike while on dual-sport trips.

It's a RAD hub that bolts directly to the strom forks
