    Hey Rubberdown, I finally got to go to this link to hear the Holeshot. I can't access a video from work, and it seems that is when I am online lately.
    Anyway, that thing does sound badass! I really like that deep tone.

    What is it like just cruising at a constant RPM around 5k? How does it change when you really get on it?

    I want exhaust now! My wife is gonna put me in the garage with it though...

    It has a nice deep sound when cruising but not overly loud IMO. I do wear ear plugs though. When you really get on it the bike sounds like a nice V-Twin should. I've got an idea! :pot Order the Holeshot and cut the stock pipe off. Then, call your wife in the garage and act very shocked and upset. :eek1 Tell her someone STOLE the muffler off of your new bike and now you have to replace it. If she compains that you really don't need a muffler then start the bike sans muffler and see how fast she changes her mind. :deal If she doesn't buy your story.........................

















    dress warm. :dunno :vardy

    This could work, I may just have to go that route. Either that, or start skipping lunch and Starbucks.:eek1

    I remember the first dirt my v-strom saw. Modrover is a bad influence, no wait I was leading. :huh I rember telling him that I didn't think I was going to take it off road, an hour into the ride we found ourselves here. On the way out I jumped it over a wash in the road and bottomed out. It sure aint a dirt bike.

    Rode again yesterday. First day I"ve ridden an weeks when it wasn't cold. It wasn't warm but it was 'not cold'. Been the longest wettest winter I can remember. Rode it all, but not happy for much.

    So here is mine. I just picked this up today by chance. Went for a ride this morning on my FZ1 and came home with this 2004 DL1000. It is a used bike with 1400kms on the odo. Came with crash bars and Shad luggage system with brake lights and back rest for passenger. Sorry, no trip pics yet.
