    Nobody's going to say anything about the footpeg and shifter location on this bike???

    Ok, I will, what the heck is the story with that? You've shifted the footpegs forward on that side plate a good 12" or more, it appears, and the shifter is way up in the air.

    Just arrived today.
    My 2nd 08 DL650.
    I do miss the yellow though.

    Calling for freezing rain & cold the next few days.
    Maybe next week I'll be able to get out.

    You need to be standing on your head to put blue above yellow. (Or be a citizen of Ukraine)

    New V-Strom owner here. Bought a 2011 Wee ABS a couple of weeks ago. Got a decent deal on it, but have to clean the tank/fuel pump/filters. Probably going to do the external filter mod on it too. It was an old man that had it, and let it sit too long with old gas in it. Super clean bike, with only a little over 4,000 miles on it, with factory Suzuki hard cases, and a Givi top case. Can't wait to get her going and post up some riding pics. Already put some Shinko 804/805s on it.

    I could see how lower pegs- more leg room could be a good thing if your standing on them a lot. Also might just be handy with that chunky bash gaurd bolted up at the old peg mounts.
