VStrom Beaks

Anybody check out POWERBRONZE USA ? They have several parts including some good looking beaks for VStroms of all years.

I wasn't aware that "good looking" and "beak" could be used together in the same sentence.

It's just a matter of taste. Some people like the beak.

A couple days ago, I told my brother his Vee2 looks ugly with that beak. His response: 'Hope you like the muffler cause that's the only part you'll be seeing on the road'.

I is poor doge... I no know bikes!

Just wondering:

Does a beak,
especially an add-on,
serve any practical purpose?

So I guess you've never fitted something to a bike to make it look better in your eyes?

People have made negative comments on me putting Barkbuster's on my Speed Triple...I laugh, one of the best mods I have ever made. I am sure you get the point!?!

One of the fellers at the Sunday morning mountain brekky road house constantly asks what I did to make the bike uglier this week.
I need a beak for my '04 Wee. Then I can look just like his GS!
I'll have to check Powerbronze.
