    Took my license class with Harley Davidson, so I go there every once in a while to chill out in the lounge or catch the events that go on there. The next day at the same event
  2. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I was riding back from dropping a kid off at school and the bike just quit on me (in a construction zone, of course). I was able to fire it back up but it would quit again if RPMs dropped below 3k. I was luckily only a few blocks from home and coasted it most of the way. After getting home...

    The more I ride my DL650 the more I'm liking it, and the more I want to take it off the perfect surface into stuff that might not play so nicely but get me far off the beaten track. I am keen to avoid the dreaded tank slapping that I've heard described around the place - I'll be happy if I never...

    I have a chance to buy a 2013 "new" V-Strom 650 from a dealer at a sizable discount. What am I giving up if I buy the 2013 instead of a new 2015? Appreciate any advice.

    I have a Vstrom 650 2013, and am preparing for spring travel. I have added heated handgrips, but want to add a heating strip/pad to my seat, as well. Has anyone had good experiences with particular types of heating pad units, with controls ?

    Hello, After straying away for awhile from Strom ownership, I am currently looking at leftover 2013's. I was shooting for a white one, and can get one but they are out of State. A Blue one is within closer reach, but just wanted to get some good shots of Owners here as a lot of the net...

    I just wanted to answer some questions I had remaining after reading the 10,456 crash bar threads I found before I installed my crash bars. This is all regarding the new Sw-motech bars and a 2013 strom. I had no issues removing the OEM bolts- I guess warm sunshine was all the heat they needed...

    Does anyone have any knowledge about whether the Yoshi 2012 3/4 exhaust will work on the 2013 model? I have called Yoshi and they tell me that they have not verified the fitment for the '13 yet. I suspect that it does, since the Akrapovic lists theirs for the '12 and '13. Any imput would be...

    Second fill (93 octane), at the time...half tank full. Cruising in 2nd gear at 20-35mpg. Felt like if I was holding on to the front brake a little. Rpm's revd down a bit. Happened on the way to dealer (I was going there anyway to by some farklewear). Dealer had great service though he said he...

    Local dealer got the colours for next year's bikes. Colours for your territory might be different.
  12. Product Reviews
    So first off I want to give a small review of the company I got my gloves from. I saw the advertisement last week for Atomic-Moto which was offering a "promocode" for 10% off for Stromtroopers. I ordered the gloves on Wednesday morning and received them Friday afternoon. Great, fast service...
