Farkling

I like the word “farkling”... Don’t think there are any equivalent in the Swedish language.
Anyway, today I have been doing a lot of farkling to my new 650XT -15. A large box from SW-Motech arrived, so I have spent a few hours in the garage in spite of the heat.
New parts are Adventure cases, crash bars, GPS mount, engine protector and main stand. Everything from SW Motech. I have also installed a fat bar on 25mm risers and a Givi Airflow screen. Very satisfied with everything except that the engine guard gives a lot more noise from the engine. I will try to add som soundproofing material to the inside of it. Also love my new Mitas e07. It has totally transformed the bike on the gravel roads I prefer to ride.

Tried to link to a picture, but it seems I have too few posts...

I'm looking at a very blue bike, if this is what you're trying to post it's working.

2015 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 bought new 4/26/17
2015 Victory Cross Country bought new 7/11/15 (dyno tuned 118hp 116tq)
If it's not broken, make it better
My take on oil: Name brand, wet clutch compatible.....BAM good to go.

I had to click on the link but received a pic of a good looking blue Strom. I, on the other hand don't really care for the word "farkle". Sounds to me like a cross between passing gas and pyrotechnics. JM2C.

I don't see it...trying your link to embed does not seem to work. I tried TinyPic first and it would still not embed, so I used Photobucket:



Yes, the E07 is a outstanding tire and my all time favorite.
