I believe you got one left at Big M or was it St. Louis Power sports (they both had them)? I got a leftover red one a few months back from Big M. Ryan was my salesman. That was my second V-Strom through Ryan. I have 3000 miles on it already - in the winter none the less. This week looks like another good ride week (if you are retired).
I just put on a Givi rock fender I got from Motostorm in Italy directly inexpensively (actually I ordered everything Givi from them - Airflow, crash bars, tank bag, top case mount, skid and saved about $400). I ride the fire roads occasionally in southern Missouri but not true off-road. I had a rock hit the radiator on my 650 that a truck threw up on pavement so I put an oil filter and radiator guard on the DL1000. The Givi is only 1/8" riveted aluminum which isn't a real skid and very light weight but plenty for rocks (some don't like the looks since it isn't black). I bought everything direct from Italy for about 60% of US cost shipped. It takes about a week Fed Ex. Great customer support. They even send me quality questionnaires.
