Bridgestone Battle Wings. Seem to last forever, a lot of my riding is commuting.

Great shots, what are the pads you have up there on the tank?

TechSpec tank grips. Helps so you don't slide around when you use your legs to grip the bike.

Good stuff, and made in the USA from what I was told when I spoke to the owner at a trackday last year

I work in product marketing, so I fully understand how these packages are put together - but for the life of me, I can't figure how it made sense for Suzuki Canada to bring all three colors in (in each of three different trim levels too) while Suzuki USA stuck with one color for each of two models. I mean, really? The market down there literally moves 20x the volume. It's not like white is some offbeat Euro-market color either.

+1 Wish we knew the reasoning behind this. I can just see getting a new one and then a few months later they offer up all three colors in any combination here in the US. That would be wrong.

Thanks. The pads are Tech Spec tank grip pads. They really allow me to grip the bike with my knees much more securely when riding in twisties or dirt. Tech Spec doesn't make a pattern specifically for the V-Strom, so I bought one of their generic sheets and made my own. They're a fantastic help when the riding gets a bit more... ahem, spirited.
