After several months of looking for the 'right' bike I have decided to go for a 2012 model Vstrom 650. I looked at a used one with less than 6000 kms on it and will buy it this week!
A bit about my riding background - Been riding for 10 odd years. 27 year old new dad!
Previous bikes - Kawasaki ZZR250 (sold), Kawasaki ZX6 (written off) and Kawasaki ZX6 (currently own and ride)
After several years of riding supersport motorcycles, I am looking for a bit of a change. I consider myself a very capable road rider and have done many track days also. i am a super noob off road though. I am looking to do a combination of touring as well as exploring those unsealed roads that I've always wanted to check out.
On my zx6 i always wondered where those roads end up!
Looking to add some farkles to the bike i get. Its fairly stock standard right now.
I am looking to get the following. Any recommendations are very much appreciated.
1. Bash plate / engine guard.
2. Crash bars.
PS - I hail from the glorious lands of Australia
