    Everyone in the V-Strom Collective knows that 'Stroms get tired and need to lay down sometimes.

    So, post your snoozing 'Strom photos.

    This isn't my photo, I stole it from another thread. :evil

    These are all good shots,I am actually thinking of crashing my 650 strom after looking at this thread. I did drag it out to Burning Man, which involved more clean up time then some crashes.

    Not sleeping a the moment, but you can see the evidence of where it had a nap in the nice cool sands of Fraser Island.

    Likewise, watch out--it's quiet here right now. Sorry you have to put yours to sleep, albeit temporarily.

    In the meantine: best wises to ride, ride, ride. Be safe... This is truly the "land of not motorcycles" (for us, locals ride the shit out of some scooters).

    Best of luck.

    We, (wife and I) are actually going to Afghanistan. 2nd time for me, first for her. Don't think I saw a singe two wheeled vehicle the whole time. Not counting donkey carts of course.

    Hi-Jack over.
