    Stromtroopers - New member introductions
    Hello Troopers, I'm a former KLR rider who felt like everytime I got on the highway I was going to get run over. I then moved to a Versys but found the back roads were not something the Versys could really do, no matter how much the Versys lovers think it can or how much you farkle it. So...
  3. Bestem 929 top case on 2012 vstrom adventure

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    Because of the shortage of Suzuki top box, and since I only want to use the (huge) Suzuki side cases for long trips, I bought from Amazon the cheap Bestem 929 top box that comes with all the hardware to mount it on the bike.

  6. My new 2012 V Strom

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hi - been lurking here for a few months while I talked myself into buying a 650 V. The new one came out just as I was in the middle of deciding to get one, so I waited and got it. Anyway, after 800 k's I am pretty happy. Took a couple of videos of it off road with a cheap pen cam that I had...
