    Hey, I've currently got a Kawasaki ER-5 but picking up my new DL650A from the dealer on the 2nd of May with crash bars and centre stand. Been looking at V-Stroms since I passed my test but didn't want one as a first bike til I got more experience. Now I've been told to stop chucking money at...
  2. Riding Gear
    I've been debating between picking up a Scorpion EXO AT950, which seem to be very popular here and in my local dual-sport groups, or buying a Scorpion R420 and a Bell MX9 MIPS. On one hand, it's nice to be ready for anything, especially when adventure riding long distance to fire roads. On the...

  8. DL650A - 2012-2016
    Hi Guys, I'm actually in the middle of a road trip from Chicago to Las Vegas. Everything's going well, except that the wind buffeting is really wearing me down. I noticed that if I slouch in the seat a couple of inches the wind noise is dramatically lower. Because of this I decided it would...
  9. General V-Strom Discussion
    New to the forum, new to riding as well.... here's my rant, and hopefully some constructive feedback on this one, I hope. Been driving a vehicle for about 35years (no accidents, great driving record), but I always wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle. Avid mountain bike rider yes, but...
