My friend Ernie has had my 650 in his shop for a month or so tinkering with it and here is what he has done to it.
He built some aluminum pannier racks and mounted a set of aluminum bags
Also note the hyper lights on a custom bracket above the plate. I'm a firm believer on those hyper lights!
he also came up with a cool radiator guard
I think the headlights on the strom are better than the ones on my truck but I guess a little more wouldn't hurt. he mounted up a set of PIAA's on the forks
and to keep it from sinking, he made a fat foot for it.
He also said that if I get a set of crash bars he would make a skid plate for me but I don't know if I can afford it, kinda looks like I might owe him a few bucks!!!
Looks like my old strom will be well set up for this summers travels! I can't wait to ride it again. I had ordered a black 08 650 last summer when they were announced but my dealer gave me a screaming deal on an 07 with 150 miles that I couldn't pass up. I finally got to see one at the cycle show in Minneapolis last weekend and I sure like it! I don't regret getting my silver one though.
