All Galfer Brake Line KITS are made with Dupont Teflon Steel braided cable. There are 16 braided lines of steel around the inner section, making the line expansion close to zero under all conditions.

Galfer hose meets or exceeds the following tests and requirements: SAEJ 1401, UNE 26-399-89, ISO 3996. Temperature range : -67/ +464(f). Braking power, Galfer lines will require less pressure at the brake lever to stop the bike, allowing the rider to use less force and stop faster.

All Brake lines are coated the entire length of the line to protect the bike from scratches and the brake fluid from humidity.

All Galfer pre-made brake line kits include all the necessary SS banjo bolts and washers. Make sure that all brake line or hydraulic clutch installations are done by a certified professional motorcycle mechanic.

- All Kits include all the necessary mounting hardware -

It is a made in the USA product.

I've tested the SS Brake lines on my own DL650 Vstrom, and the DL1000 Vstrom, as well as many other bikes.

They both look and work great.

So, here is how this is going to work. This is a posted photo contest, no limit on times entered, one photo shot per entry.

Please do not post comments or discussions on your personal opinions regarding the products, or their use, on this thread. If you have questions you can either email me or PM me or we can set up another thread elsewhere.

This Thread should be reserved for Adventure Touring Contest Photos, and appropriate response to the Photos posted. Thanks.

We're looking for the best photograph, taken of a Vstrom, on an adventure touring ride, anywhere. The Vstrom must be in the photograph, the rider is optional, but could add value or merit to the photo. :cool:

The photo's can have been previously posted. If it is on your myspace or personal web page, OK. Posted on any other forum or adventure travel site, no problem, just make sure it is a Vee, or a Wee, Strom. :cool:

We are looking for fresh, new, interesting photos of real Stromtroopers bikes. A single line to describe the photo location and particulars is all that is necessary. Two lines if you have a long title. We are not looking for essays on your trip, but do describe the scene. I encourage you to post the full ride report and the photos in the appropriate spot elsewhere on the forum.

Everyone is eligible, regardless or where you are located, The Frame Sliders and Swing Arm Sliders will be shipped to the winner immediately after the winner is declared,by the judges following whatever day we close the contest after May 1, 2008.

So, get busy everyone, send in your best, Adventure Touring, photo shot of your DL650 or your DL1000 Vstrom, and if you don't have one now, you've got time to get out on your bike, set up a great personal photo scene, and win a FREE Set of Gen Mar Risers, from SV Racing Parts.

In the event the winner of the SV Racing Parts, April Spring Ride Photo Contest is already a customer of SV Racing Parts, and has already purchased a Set of the Gen Mar Risers, the winner will then be entitled to request and will receive a full credit of the original purchase price of the Gen Mar Risers, from SV Racing Parts, to purchase any other SV Racing Parts product, in lieu of the prize offered,

My Mom collects Swans of all shapes and sizes. When I passed this on my trip to Glacier National Park I had to go back for the pic.

:) We built our family cabin, ourselves, over a number of years, on Swan Lake, when I was kid; back in the day when a view lot with Lake access, through a common boat launching ramp, was $2,000, and the one acre lake lots, like the one we had was the big money, at $10,000. :D

I understand that they are considerably more now, my parents sold out in the 90's when they retired.

Great shot, and beautiful country, :cool:

Enjoy the ride, and best regards,

US180 in New Mexico just north of Alma. I saw the dry river bed from the road and liked the fence. I had no idea how soft the sand was going to be getting down there, I was lucky to make it then I had to figure out how to turn around.
