Birthday surprise for me from my wife. Fork brace and peg lowering kit arrived in the mail.
Now just have to find time to install them.

Peg lowering kit is the bomb. Everyone over about 40 years old needs to get one. Of course if you are a peg dragger........just get a Gixxer or K1200S. A bit more money, but saves the Vstrom pegs.

No peg dragging for me.

I have 36" inseam and while I haven't complained about the leg room, I'm thinking it will be a pretty nice addition!

Installed my fork brace. Easy enough to do, but as typical I screwed it up the first time.
In my head the long bolt should go in the outer bolt holes. This is of course wrong.....

I haven't had a lot of spirited riding recently, but my head says the handling is a bit lighter and feels more solid at the same time. Even if it is all in my head, I'm glad I got one!

Another shout out for some fork brace love! Immediate notice of improvement in handling of my Vee. More planted and stable at illegal speeds and really helps cut through the cross winds and truck turbulence. Can't believe how responsive the bike feels. Almost sport bike'ish. Was talking to my neighbor and telling him. His BMW has one molding in with the fender. I guess one company sees the benefits and incorporates it from the factory. Thanks Rick for the quick delivery!

I am curious. Using the four available holes in the brace, has anyone tried mounting a spot/floodlight there? I am interested to see the results if so!
