I wouldn't be surprised if that beak becomes available as an accessory. I never thought it would be standard.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A is just getting started.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s
See http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at http://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

Take solace in the knowledge that you are paying less than everybody else for your bike, and your fuel (and from what I can tell, everything else too). I read with envy all the U.S. "how much should I pay" threads.

I can't think of a reason they limit your choices in the U.S. Even though Adv bikes are less popular over there one would assume your large population would offset that.

Your right for the price I paid, I can take my panels off and have them repainted what color I want, and still come out cheaper than the rest of the world.

I've noticed that too and i sincerely hope it's not true...i absolutely f2cking hate grey (gray!)...it's not a colour (color!) it's dull dull and double Dull...please say it's not true Suzuki?

That blue is my fav...looks stunning. Yeah them stickers are everywhere but if you apply gentle heat from your wife/girlfriend's (or yours?) hairdryer then they peel of just dandy.
