Thanks, she's an 06.
can't believe that I never posted in this thread...I have been remiss.
A couple of shots from the road up to Cerro Gordo...we were chasing the sunlight.
same area slightly earlier
Looks like front page photos to me.
Thanks valongbeard! I felt that plenty of close-ups of farkeled Stroms already had been posted. Really like the atmospheric feel to both of those pics.
Although there is barely a V-Strom in this picture from the Kelso Dunes, I dig the feel in this one too.
Have yet to test it, but I thought that there may be some interest in this project, especially the wire wheels.
Suzuki Canada are showing it in their booth at the upcoming Canadian Motorcycle Shows if you're in the Great White North.
More info at cmgonline.com. Will try and answer any questions here too.
Life is Good
Or, at least... it beats the only alternative!
Keep 'em coming boyz. Nice piccies.
Sometimes it is Rusty...sometimes it is. Right when that picture was taken --it certainly was
Looks awesome! Just needs a bigger donk!
It says so, right on the jar in the picture. ^^^^^ Oops, someone else picked up on it besides me.
Interesting. I have ever seen a black '06.
Nice work, with the bike and articles. Love the wire wheels. I followed the wire wheel thread here and it died shortly after the ABS ring was discussed. Any idea if RAD is going to make a hub that will work with the ring and stock rotors?
Just got back yesterday from a 7 day, 2,155 mile, 2-up trip to Utah on my Wee. It was a cold and AWESOME time. Here are a few pics of the bike from the journey.
Waaaaaay loaded down, but still did great.

Interesting top case arrangement you have there.
The Pelican case on top is only for the camera and its gear. I assured my girl that the camera would be more than safe. I also have a nice looking 46L top case, but its in too good of condition to mess with. This is the smaller top case thats a bit beat up on the outside, but not the inside. So I took and bolted the Pelican case to the top of the top case, since there isn't any other practical place for it. It also serves the purpose of a better back rest. Since this top case is shorter than the bigger one, it hits my girls back at a rather low spot. After doing 900 miles so informed me.... "you mounted this Pelican case in the right spot." Since its some what further back, it acts as a sort of lazy boy recliner for her. It would have been way too uncomfortable if it was mounted flush. Yes it adds about 25 lbs to the top, but after putting another person back there I really don't notice it.
Does anyone have some pics without luggage? I'd like to see what some do with this bike closer to offroad use.
