Talking

Suppose he should have made them different diameters to get that real GS look.

I think I'll take a nap.

Some of the best headlights in the business are on the Strom. Why change them and that windscreen is, shall we say, interesting.

Odd couple-

I say if you want an Africa Twin, go buy one. That guy ended up with something that looks like the bastard child of an FZR and this thing-



But if he likes it, I'm happy for him. I'll bet it still rides nice.

Best ones in the business??? Ugh, no thanks. Always hated the lights on this bike. thought they could have done better, especially for trying to compete in a dual sport, adventure style market. Always thought it looks like some wide-eyed, chrome-laden sheet of glass on an overgrown scooter. Sort of how my mom looked when I used to scare her at night coming around a dark corner in the hallway...

Question

I think he meant the best functioning lights in the business.

Some people like sharks teeth on the fairing and others like round lights. Whatever floats your boat I suppose.

I think it's interesting, but I bought the strom because it was ugly and different (as well as being the best at what it's meant to do). The previous GS comments seem to sum it up best.
