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.

It says so, right on the jar in the picture. ^^^^^ Oops, someone else picked up on it besides me.

Nice work, with the bike and articles. Love the wire wheels. I followed the wire wheel thread here and it died shortly after the ABS ring was discussed. Any idea if RAD is going to make a hub that will work with the ring and stock rotors?

Just got back yesterday from a 7 day, 2,155 mile, 2-up trip to Utah on my Wee. It was a cold and AWESOME time. Here are a few pics of the bike from the journey.



















Waaaaaay loaded down, but still did great.
