  1. One gas better than another?

    V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    So I am curious if anyone has a preference for the kind of gas (ethanol or non-ethanol) and the preferred octane you use in your Wee's? I have a 2020 DL650 XT adventure I just bought and am not impressed with 87 octane non-ethanol but am only on my 2nd tank.

    General V-Strom Discussion
    Hello all, I'm planning to take a week to meander around the state of Oregon in May, and I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good resource for fuel station locations. Not a problem for the most part, but they're likely to be scarce in the remote SE part of the state. Any help?
  6. Mid to High mileage wee questions

    V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    Okay, so it is winter so I have been pretty much riding to and from work for the last couple months. Before that I returned from my Alaska trip and got pretty abysmal gas mileage. I chalked this up to a heavy load and a heavy headwind. That leads us up to this weekend. It was 60 degrees on...
