I think thats what we call 'fully loaded'.

I was going to do the storage tube, but that faux muffler is just at a whole other level. You could like... uhh... totally stash your weed in there maaaan.

The faux left pipe storage is amazing! Where did you get it? I have not seen anything like that in any of the usual v-strom parts outlets.

I built it.........Bought a DL650 muffler off Ebay and used only the chrome end cap. The rest is simply PVC sewer pipe.........
