    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.

    I posted this in a different thread earlier.
    This morning I’m at Cooks Corner- the local stop in the OC hills and Massa and Tanaka -engineers with Suzuki come walking up and chat me up on the History of my Silver V-Strom—

    Massa said he helped worked on the fuel mapping and I said so yer the reason so many of us had to get Power Commanders!! :lol3

    Outstanding!

    IMG_7823[1].JPG Switching from an SV to a VStrom. I've only had it for a week but my body is very happy about it. In addition to being a better fit for my needs in general, it's a better match for the Montreal streets, which are are not exactly the smoothest.
    Will make it mine over the winter, for anyone interested, I think those Givi bags and their rack will be for sale soon.

    Nice bike hope you like it!!
    You might want to consider keeping those bags-
    Givi’s are easy on and off with a push of the button.

    Adds to the multi-functionality of one the worlds best UJM’s-

    Full hard bags including tank bag-
