Down under Wee Strom

Hi all, I’ve been riding a DL650 for a couple of years after my sports bike started hurting my knees and my cruiser started hurting my hips! Took a few years to get it how I want it but I really love my 2008 Vstrom. I’ve padded the seat up as I’m 6’4”, added the cruiser panniers and lowered the exhaust to keep the bike slim enough to slip through traffic jams. We’ve just had a really dry winter with 24 degrees Celsius most days so I ride to work most days. Snow? What’s snow?

Welcome to the Forum. For little more comfort / leg room, you may want to look into a peg lowering kit, as discussed on

Snow? That's the white stuff featured on most Xmas cards (and the best place for it, IMHO).
