How's it fellow Strom troopers.
My name is Slackgod and I've recently developed a Vstrom problem.
Viktor the Vstrom came into my life about three weeks ago by pure happenstance and so far it's been alot of FUN, but things are getting out of hand. I'm finding myself going a little to fast on the road for my current skill set and a little to far off the road for Viktor without proper protection. I'm dealing with the on road part by riding as much as possible and signing up for some more rider training. I'm reaching out to all of you for Viktor's safety as I keep finding that he's aged out of the aftermarket's eye and finding things like crash bars, belly plate, modified shifter to use with dirt boots and IMS pegs, you know all the good off road farkely bits are hard to come by. Any leads or if you've got stuff likethat gathering dust.? Please let me know.
We hail from Central Oregon USA.
Viktor is mostly stock, came with a set of Heidenau Scout tires and some questionable road rash. So far I've been able to add a set of IMS rally pegs, Pro Taper ADV bars and plan to add belly plate and crash bars as that is gonna happen probably sooner than later.
Would really appreciate any current or former owners of this GEN Vstrom reaching out as I have a couple maintenance and quirky handling questions as I seem to be the lone local StromTrooper in a sea of KTM's and Africa Twins.
Cheers and thanks for reading this.
