What 2nd bike do people have? - Page 8 - Stromtrooper Forum : Suzuki V-Strom Motorcycle Forums
Other Motorcycles Forum for you to engage in banter about other motorcycles. Good place for former (and soon to be) V-Strom owners to keep on the site even though they are without a Strom. This is not a tech forum on other bikes. There are other sites for that.

second bike?

Well, I guess my "second" bike is the DRZ

Which would make the "third" the '71 F8

The 4th would be the CRF fiddy

5th is the TY80

6th I suppose is the MC1M (a work in progress)

And no pictures yet of the "7th", a brand new to me 1966 Suzuki S32...

I have 4 other bikes also..........But i put more miles on my KLR650 tengai than my other bikes.

my klr was an off-road traveling machine!!

next is my V-twin 2001 Buell X1 lightning 1253cc

KLR's are cheap fun and you could build one from old parts for like $1800.00
I have seen em used for 2k-5k. I would sell you mine right now for $2500.00 in stock form! With mods $3200.00

then my Tear ir up bike 2005 Kawi ninja ZX10R

I have 2 other bikes that are dirt only but no pics sorry!

GASP! You sold the Vee?
Oh well, a new Stromtrooper is about to surface in the DL1000 section.

MiteyF, thanks for posting descriptors with your pics so I know what the hell I'm looking at.

I do, kind Sir. I was going to reply with "idler shaft lever", until I finished reading your post and saw that you did indeed identify what the doohickey actually is.

2004 KLR650 here.

I bought the wee for better slab performance. But the longer the KLR sits unsold in the garage, the more I'm thinking the wee is "in addition to" rather than "in replacement of."

Still, we'll see what the wife has to say about all this...
