Happy Trail 7.5" Teton panniers
SW Motech skid plate
Hepco Becker crash bars
30mm riser
Barkbusters "storm" hand guards
Givi Airflow windshield
Wolfman Peak tail bag is too small for traveling, but good for picking up a 6-pack when the panniers are off.
Alaska Leather sheepskin buttpad
Adventure Tech fork brace should arrive today.
Warm sunny weather should arrive next week!

The 7.5" panniers are too narrow for a typical backpacking sleeping bag. They have a lip around the top that makes the opening narrow. You can stuff it in there but its hard to get back out. But they are already 39" wide and I didn't want them any wider. So the fartsack will get strapped on top and the tent will ride inside the box.

The givi airflow windshield is awesome! Very quiet.

The pelican cases and mounts are going in the flea market as well as a fork brace. PM me for early sales
Congrats! The massive weight of the S10 has me a bit spoked. How does she feel in the twisties?

Thanks, I'll have to try that next time I'm over that way. Looks like a fun road. Maybe I'll run into you at the Whitehorse Barbeque.

A favorite ride for sure. You can do a Googlemap street view fly through to get a sense of how good it is.

Just picked my new to me 2006 Vee. Picked it up from Atlantic Motoplex in Moncton, New Brunswick. Great bunch of folks to deal with. I live over an hour away, and they delivered it to my door at no charge.

Bike already has some of the mods I wanted, Sargent seat, GIVI screen, two powerlet outlets, bar risers, and GIVI top case. Bike runs great, no surging or stumbling like a lot of Vee owners complain about. The clutch chudder is there, but that doesn't bother me. Lots of power, very comfortable.

I'm gonna add some side cases, crashbars and skidplate before my trip to Labrador in August.







Couldn't have picked a better April day to get a new bike, 13 degrees Celsius and sunshine. A rare thing this spring.

Sarcastic? Moi?


The scenery in New Brunswick is only exceeded by Nova Scoitia and the rock. But the road quality is on par with downtown Boston.

Before I bought my 'strom I was concerned about the 19" front. Hard to find rubber I would want to run, I thought. Someone told me they felt the 19" was great at eating up crappy New England pavement.

Since buying, I've found they were completely right.

I roll over 'meh' pavement that leave my sport-bike buddies whimpering.

My 650 also occasionally returns 300+ mile tanks. I've been known to skip every other gas-stop while riding with those sport-bike clowns.

Wicked good fun.
