TAZ650...I must say, you either live near a lot of interesting stuff or you've just put a hell of a lot of miles on that bike!!

:lucky: Peace and harmony in the open road and on two wheels. Who needs wind at your back when it could be in your face?!

Some pic's of my 2012

Got my tall seat and MRA windshield on, boy that was a PITA to put together! I also got some S-W Motech decals made for the crash bars (orange) and skid plate. Also mounted my Givi trunk and backrest. Get-R-done, Cheers--BB

Only 130 miles in, but at least the tyres are worn in enough now...

Yellow V-strom

Hi guys I see there are a couple of questions on my yellow v strom. So here goes. All my motorcycles I had have always been yellow (few exceptions) so when I was looking to buy the V strom I was disappointed that there was not a yellow one available only black white and orange. The local dealer had black ex demo and made me good offer on my yellow F800s so after looking at it I quickly realised it should be quite an easy job to change the colour just a question of removing 5 panels and getting them to a paint shop that another dealer/mate recommended and the results you can see in the picture. Bit of a dialog on what colour yellow to go for and the sky is the limit on what you can spend on specialised paint but I went for a bog standard yellow that every paint shop in the world can replicate if I ever need a touch up. The price was about EUR400.00 not cheap in my view for spraying 5 panels but I wanted a yellow v strom so I coughed up the monies. So that was the easy part the next big project is to get the bike to the Americas for a pan american road trip I am in the middle of planning.Attached before and after shots

Well, I am a new Vstrom owner! I was looking heavily last year and I was going to buy a new 2011 Vstrom. I then seen a preview of the 2012 Vstrom and decided to be patient and wait. I went yesterday to the dealer, bought a black 2012 650 Vstrom and I should be able to pick it up on Friday. Here is a pic of the bike in the store that I took with my phone camera. I will have better pics once I pick it up
