"Bulletproofing" a strom
Searched a bit, and haven't found anything that really fits. I was wondering if anyone took all the necessary steps to effectively 'bulletproof' a strom for some real adventure. Not actually bullets obviously, but I am talking crash bars (which I've heard don't even really protect all that much in a wreck), frame sliders, those big mama jamma acerbis lever guards, bedliner paint job, etc.
I've had so-called 'pretty' bikes in the past, and wanted to see about the feasibility of being able to bomb around, push the limits on the back trails, and not have to worry about snapping a lever or replacing turn signals every time it tips over. I know, I know, "buy a dirt bike if you want to do that", "take a track day" etc etc....I just don't want to worry about scratching it up.
Does anyone feel the same way??
