    I'll fling-up a pic of my '01 when I can.

    I think this is the one bike will never part with (according to my daughter, I CAN'T part with it!).

    Regards...

    I love my '94! It rolled over 60K miles while on a week long tour to Northern Arkansas and back. To borrow from another thread, this bike is a keeper.

    Tried to post a pic. Didn't work. See avitar.

    I had a '94 for a while. It served as my touring and 2-up mount, second fiddle to my Aprilia Mille R. I sold both the VFR and Aprilia to buy a V-Strom.

    When I bought it:

    I was wondering what I'd be riding this spring....but I got T-boned (in my car) this afternoon, so it looks like I'm not buying anything o ntwo wheels for a while.

    1. Win Lottery
    2. Buy 25th Anniversary Ed.
    3. Powder coat rear wheel blue, front white
    4. Quit reading ADVrider bike specific threads, although with #1 that might not be a problem

    I know, weird huh? I loved the Mille, but it just didn't fit the role I needed for a bike. For all it's carbon and titanium, for all it's Italian sportbike beauty, for all it's handling on the track...I didn't ride it all that much. The VFR was basically just a pack mule. My Aprilia was a monoposto so I needed something that could carry the GF and/or my luggage on trips.

    I put more miles on my V-Strom in the first two months of ownership than I put on the Aprilia or VFR (individually) in the two years prior. It may not be cool, it may not be fast, but my Vee is the most fun bike I've ever owned.

    Here's my 06 White ABS model. Sold my V-strom and bought this over a year ago.

    Sorry for the terrible cell phone pics.
