  1. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I've just put a Madstad system on my 03, and went on a long ride that included a couple of hours of highway/interstate. The bike is OK on it's own, but around traffic or in crosswinds at 120k/70+mph it is much more wobbly than before. The VStrom was more highway speed unstable than any other...
  2. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    As any rider knows, stopping for tolls and fumbling for change is a bigger PITA than in a cage. It's also hard to find a place to secure your toll transponder from targets of opportunity. And frankly, sometimes suction cups or velcro just won't cut it on a bike. I've lost one suction-cupped...
  3. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    When I take delivery on Saturday, the bike should have the OEM centerstand and Givi luggage installed. I'll probably try to pick up a throttle lock before I leave the dealership. While I'll probably add a fork brace eventually, higher on my list are Madstad brackets and possibly, bar...

    Hello all! I recently picked up a new 2012 V-Strom 650 Adventure on June 2 and am absolutely loving it so far! I have about 320 miles on it and had a few questions. 1. Is riding on the highway (40 to 50 miles non-stop) bad for the Wee during the "break in" period? I've been alternating...

    Cee Baileys will have a new windshield out next week. They have been using my bike to pattern out ect. I will get my bike back on Wednesday with the shield. They are taking pictures on Monday and Tuesday. What do I get? A windshield for my bike for free and fifty dollars a day for loss of bike...
  6. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hello, I purchased a MadStad bracket despite mixed reviews on this site. The people who favor the product do so with quite a bit of zeal... I had hoped to experience that level of success, but sadly have not. I am 5'10" with a 32 inseam. I ride with an Icon AirFrame helmet. The MadStad is...
  7. General V-Strom Discussion
    So, I winterized my Weestrom, with TKC80's and about 130 studs. Problem is, the stock windscreen with a Madstad in the highest position pushes the air right about chin level for me. (I'm 6'8") What windshield do I want to replace this with? Givi? I've heard recommendations against the...
