Welcome to Stromtrooper, Pietro.

Italy, the roads must be made for the VStrom 650!

Many happy miles to you! (Rather kilometers.)

Hello Pietro,
I'm envious of you as Italy is such a beautiful country! Congrats on your Strom...

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wee. I love your track picture. I'm afraid of leaning that far. Also, what does the "r" after the "DL" mean?

And your english is just fine.

Nice bike. I really like the purple rear springs and the texture on the pillion seat matching the pipe.

But what is the line on the swingarm for?

Line on the swing arm? I see a piece of vertically mounted (reflective?) tape that says VStrom, and on top the swing arm I see a brake line, maybe a stainless steel brake line.

(pause for second look...)

That isn't tape, it looks like a mounting bracket wrapped around the swing arm to secure that body panel/rear fender. You'll see the body panel left of the black exhaust pipe heat shield.

I'd guess the "R" on the DL-R-650 name decal is for "race". After all, he does live in Italy. That must be a Euro model.

Bon Giorno, Ben Veni! Il V-Strom si Molte Bellisima!

My Italian is a little rusty. For all I know...well whatever I said, it was well thought.
