Got my own V-Strom, finally.

I found a 2013 ADV model with - get this - 1300 miles. Thirteen Hundred Miles.

Just brought it home today.

That pretty but practically useless ADV rear rack has already been replaced. Is there a market out there for these?

Hola, what makes that rack useless? It's flat and has lots of holes for endless possibilities of mounting a box or strapping stuff down.
And yes, there is always a market for properly priced farkles.

Okay, "worthless" may not be accurate but it sure won't do what I use a rear rack for.
I'll post a picture later. I carry lots of gear.
