    video of a one day adventure ride with the adventurised SV650. went like a dream on easy dirt roads and tracks but the stock rear suspension isn't much chop once things get gnarly. but of course a vstrom wouldn't handle those bits very well either. so very impressed with the way it all fits together....

    Nice. Are not you worry with the radiator width? In a drop, that one is the fist to touch the ground, on the Wee it is much narrower.

    He has frame sliders on it--which work well to protect the radiator in a street drop situation (don't ask how I know.) Rough terrain might be a different proposition. Hard to anticipate how a bike will land, or on what, in an off road situation.
