My ride

When I bought her(second hand), her color was old-man-grey.



Now she looks like that ... because I'm far too young for an old-man-grey bike.









I made just a few modifications:



Sorry friends, English is not my native language, but I try anyway.

1. Heating Grips
2. Hand Covers
3. Gear Display
4. Handlebar Mountings
5. Speed Display
6. Lamp Cover (already removed)
7. Strom-Pecker
8. 2 additional Lamps
9. cut Front Fender
10. Progressive Fork Springs
11. Steelflex Brake Pipes
12. EBC Sintermetall-Breakpads
13. special Air Vents (90 degree angle)
14. Front Fender Extension
15. BMC Airfilter
16. Cooler Cover
17. Roll Bar
18. Engine Cover
19. Gearshift Arm TL 1000
20. 16er Pinion
21. Main Stand
22. Wilbers-Spring for the Rear Wheel Suspension
23. 43 Chain Ring
24. Rear Whell Spacers (german V-StromForum)
25. Chain Guard
26. Rear Fender Extension
27. Top-Case Mounting
28. Seat (Cushion and Cover)
29. Blackbox to recalculate the Speed Display

Now, she lives up to her full potential.
Excellent engine, excellent suspension, excellent brakes and an optimal transmission.
She's now a real multi-purpose bike: She's a very good touring bike for 2 persons, you can drive her off-road and she has even a few genes from a super moto bike now.

I'm quite happy with her.

Nice mods, but the color scheme is a bit over the top... Betcha get noticed in traffic, tho!
