congratulations ! We have matching bikes, except mine has some farkles on it, ain't it great to have such an enjoyable ride?! :hurray:This thread really serves no purpose other than to brag about how excited i am about the new bike i got today. So much fancy technology and good handling. I think she'll fit in well with my KLR.
I'm thinking about the brace as well, though some people say you don't really need it. Which did you get?*The main farkle I would recommend is DEFINATELY a Fork Brace. It is cheap and it improves the riding capabilities in winds like you wouldn't believe! Even I was skeptical at first, now it is the best $80 I spent!
Wow thats a coincidence, I was riding a TU250 for the last year for commuting. I did almost 9000 miles on that thing in one year. Great bike for what it is, however, the Vstrom adventure is a life changing bike for me.New to the forum, but I've been lurking for a while...
I recently 'returned' to riding after a 20+ year hiatus, and been on a Suzuki TU250 for the past year. That little thing is a lot of fun on back roads and around town. But, now I've met my goal and graduated to a bike that I can take out on the highways and campgrounds.
Posts here and on ADVRider helped me make the choice and I now have the Adventure model that looks just like everyone else's black beast. :thumbup:
I just picked it up last Thursday, but my work schedule hasn't let me break it in fully yet. I look forward to the long weekend and some twisty backroads outside of the metroplex. unk:
Very cool, I would be into that :thumbup:A few NOVA v-stroms got together last weekend and did a really nice tour over some paved and gravel roads. Keep an eye out in case another once is organized, it was a lot of fun and I think a few of us were hoping for more rides like that in the future.
Get yourself a permanent magic marker (black) for touch up. Works great!I'm a week in and someone's already dinged the paint on the tank with their stupid hog cruiser and I've chipped the powdercoat on the right pannier banging it against a turd plastic scooter that parked too close.
I swear, people that travel on two wheels people are degenerates.
