My tide has changed
How is everyone? I thought I was a member but apparently never joined, don't know why. I bought my V-strom new in 2005, it is a 1000cc model and I've done lots and lots to it. With life changes blah, blah, blah, I still cannot part with this bike as I started thinking about doing last year. I have a couple of other bikes with one in-particular that I had been planning on making into a street tracker type of bike... You know what? After unplugging the battery tender a couple weeks ago and my trusty VStrom started on the first try, I simply thought why not make something I can/want to ride more often out of such a reliable, fun and trustworthy bike. So here's the deal (with me), I'm starting to strip down my bike to make it something else. Honest apologies to the folks wanting to slap me for changing this bike for what is intended. My first question (and I'll search) is has anyone else really spent any time making one of these bikes a street only custom? I'm also super interested in finding anyone that may have dropped their bike or had any unfortunate accident as I'm going to have lots of parts I want to part with. Anyone with my model can reach out to me if you are looking for any specific part and I have a full set of Givi hard luggage I'm parting with as well. I'll be looking around the forum and will do my best to keep posts where they need to be.
