Bye bye Sv. Welcome wee-strom!
Fairbanks to Deadhorse and back in 34 hrs. Heavy rain and construction - DL 1000 performed flawlessly.
Man you guys are good. I thought finding a new fishing spot when I was in GA was good..
I'm always interested in tires used for that trip. Care to tell us?
There's a huge thread on buffeting over at Stromtroopers.com. For me, the madstad bracket is the ticket.
Hey KKORO. I met you in Dawson when you where having breakfast with Gpax. K60 Scouts, performed very well and they last forever. I have heard some issues with thenm such as they hydro plane, not good in the mud- all false. 30 years of off road experience and relatively new to highway driving and I found these tires near perfect for muddy conditions.
Yup, I remember. By the way, thanks for helping Greg out with his bike. Have you ever met a more determined guy than Greg. I hope to be up there again in 2019? Just traded my KLR for a 2012 DL1000. Can't wait to get up there again.
You will love the 1000!
I got my new Sit n Fly seat cover. I have a three-day ride coming up next weekend. This was the last resort before the RDL. I'll let everybody know how the new seat cover works...
Did you steal that from the cafeteria lady???
Maybe. She put up a fight at first. But I'm pretty persuasive with my hands...
I realize I'll be buying a RDL this winter. The "lunch lady hairnet" on my seat is only to see if it makes the seat more bearable for now. I only rode 750 miles a few weekends ago and my butt and back was killing me. I've already done an Iron Butt (1116 miles in 22 hours) and I wasn't sore at all. That was on a R1200GS with and RDL seat. Riding position for me is nearly identical on my V Storm. My footpegs are about an inch higher. I'm going out on a limb here and saying maybe, possibly, it's conceivable, that the RDL made the difference.
Installed new Acerbis Multiconcept handguards, Weld86 skid plate, and Seahorse cases today.
I have some sea horse cases as well. They have worked out great, absolutely fantastic for the $.
2004 VStrom looking at Mount Olympus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Olympus) and me having lunch
Did another weekend in the driftless area of Wisconsin. Stayed at Wildcat Mountain State Park. If i had a dollar for every dangerous curves sign I saw I'd be rich! 700 mile weekend. 400 miles of 25-35 mph valley curve roads. What a blast!
And the Sit n Fly seat cover worked great. $25 well spent!
Riding south east from Glacier NP, my girlfriend snapped this one of me taking a nap. The road was very long and lonely. I nearly fell asleep on a particularly long straight stretch.
