V-stroms with Character!
One of the more annoying things I've heard on a few riding forums is that the V-strom has no character. I specifically remember one guy saying that when he sold his, it was like selling a refrigerator. Pretty low dig if you ask me.
My Strom is well farkled, but for some reason I'm kind of bored with the cookie cutter extras. NOT to say I don't like them - I most certainly do!! - but it seems many I've seen on here also have Givi bags, tall windshields, etc. It's not one of a kind: yet. I'm looking into ways to make it *mine*, something people recognize when I ride by (as if riding a dual sport in the middle of Harley country doesn't already net me some looks) but I was wondering what any of you did to make it uniquely yours. Paint job, new headlights, even a constant coat of mud and knobbies - what do you think make your Strom stick out in a crowd?
