Anyone else feel the rear suspension on these things needs to be raised an inch? Aesthetically, they look like they're dragging ass. I wouldn't be satisfied until the bottom frame rail is parallel to the ground.

The price, the bike, the dealership(RPM in DFW), the performance, etc... were all just perfect. I spied it at 10:30pm Monday night, fired some emails and didn't tell any of my buddies about it, until I placed my deposit, around 2pm, the next day.

I love the StRiple and can't wait to fire it up next week, when the roads aren't a wet mess.



If I ever get to have a V7, sitting in my shop, it would replace my F650, as the rainy day, don't mind if it's a little dirty, commuter bike. A black V7 Stone. Simply beautiful.

Nice contrast! I did similar!

Took her on a 50 mile ride through some gravel and sand out in the desert on Christmas day. Performed beautifully, although some dirt bars would be preferable to the current clubmans.

Great pics. This is what I want when I move to NM next year, except with a decent rack and higher bars.

What a shame to get such a pretty bike dirty.

Go mess up a TW200.

Not all about the looks, man. I personally love seeing this beauty all dirty!

Pretty sure the tires themselves are the d606's, but I'm not a dual sport expert :-P. Feel like they're the swiss army knife of dual sport tires, ha.

Oops, missed that you were asking for tire type and size. They are TKC 80s in the aforementioned sizes.

Going to start the new year with some new rubber. I probably took apart a lot more than I needed to but GOOD GAWD, could they make it any more difficult to remove the rear tire?
