I believe you. I am at a 4:1 ratio of right to left now. Don't know what it is. Maybe the heavy exhaust on the Wee?

3 times to the right for me. Maybe gravity is different south of the border. Any Aussie's want to weigh in?

So you have a left slant and I have a right? Good to know. Let's keep that in mind if we ever ride together. Stay to my left.

Some hang right, some hang left. What can you say? Just good to know that it's enough "hang" to pull us off of the bike

Hi!

I'm from Czech Republic and I have bought V-Strom 650 last year. In season 2012 I ran over 15.000km - it's almost 10.000 miles. Here is some pics of my rides in Slovenia, Italy, Romania, Austria

Slovenia:
From Slevenia I have more videos than pics. Maybe in future will upload on Youtube










Italy:
Dolomites, Alps, many of pass
















































Romania:
Transfagarashan (TopGear), Transalpina, true Dracula's Castle and lot of off-road

That looks like a hell of a lot of fun! Even with a few accidents and all!
