    It's way overkill. You don't need an AT to do 300 miles a day on average. If you plan to do dirt roads/jeep trails, a smaller and...

    That's what I did (as I mentioned earlier on the V-Strom thread). You gotta be patient, the deals on the DL1K shock do show up once in...

    I'll second the XSR700 vote. Like the FZ/MT-07 but with a more comfortable seating position and w/o the transformers look. OTOH, both...

    The DL1K shock is about 5mm longer, so you'll get a ~12.5mm change in ride height. I posted this in the main V-Strom thread a few days...
