My first bike-great adventure !
So Saturday I traded in my 2011 mag wheel Bonneville for a 2014 Scrambler in matte Pacific blue. It's my first "dual sport" or multi purpose bike I've ever owned. The day after I bought it I took it out onto some of the roads behind the Army base they use to test tanks/humvees/etc and I beat the everliving crap out of it. And let me tell you, it delivered. I was keeping up with my friend just fine, who was riding a xr250l. I feel like I did alright for riding a 500+lb bike in an environment that it isn't all the way at home at. There are lots of modifications I'm going to do to it, but I learned after having the Bonneville that I am certainly not going to put a louder exhaust on it. I had a D&D 2-1, and it was torture on 7+ hour rides. Anmyway, I hope you guys like it, and I welcome any feedback or suggestions that anyone has.
That's my former bike, a 2008 (2007 model for you guys) Suzuki GSF-650S:
Sold it 3 weeks ago and now I'm using a Yamaha XTZ 250 Tenere. Great little bike for commuting and reasonably capable on the roads down here. Until last year, it was a Brazil only model, now it's available all over South America. No pics yet...
Oooo I love it too.
This will be my 4th season.... an I don't have any plans to seel it....
It is realy amazing bike.
Here is my V-Strom ADVenture and in the background you can see my office.. hint hint, its the tall Air Traffic Control Tower!!
Here is a test of multiple pictures on one thread..
Im learning, be patient..
Love this thread and want to add my own pics but don't know how to put them up! Can someone point me in the right direction??
Instructions on how to post a photo are here:
I've added a keihin carb fcr mx from a later model and it runs great . The only problem I have is the later exhaust headers run on the radiators and am concerned it will eventually rub through. Has anyone else fitted this system and know how to stop them fouling on each other ?
My newest bike is this '01 SV650. It just hit 11k miles. Bought it last Memorial Day from an ADV'er in Tennessee. Love the bike.
And my vintage ride. 1983 GR650. Currently being prepped for a re-paint.
Here is my beast!
