  • Waiting for my new V-Strom 650 to arrive. In the meantime, I’m working on getting ready for the riding season. I started jogging again. Gotta lose a few pounds; my riding pant are bit too snug. Been looking at maps and picking out places I’ve never been to. Helmet, boots, jacket, gloves and pants are all cleaned, polished, weatherproofed,…[Read more]

    • I live in Hawaii so there is no “season” per se…but you list some great ideas for those who have to prepare every year. My Strom is the only vehicle I own, so I ride every single day.

      • Being able to ride all year long would be like a dream come true for me. However, being forced to take my bike out of service every winter gives me an opportunity give it some TLC and perhaps build and add more farkles to it. I love working on it and doing a good job without worrying about how long it takes. If I lived in Hawaii, I’d need two…[Read more]

    • I get my new bike on Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018. The weather forecast is lots of rain. Onto every rider, a little rain must fall. Doesn’t matter much – keeping it clean is not important to me.

      • I picked up my new motorcycle today. I have photos that I tried to post but I couldn’t find the POST button. Everytime I added images to the entry, the POST button would disappear. When I removed the images, the POST button would re-appear. Please explain what’s happening. Thanks.

  • @oldguy Hi Old Guy. I’m going to buy a new 2018 V-Strom 650 this week, but I won’t be able to ride it until April at the earliest. The weather here is very good for snowmobiles. But that’s not for me. This will be my second V-Strom 650. My old work horse (2007 V-Strom 650) has served me well and I’m not sure what to do with it. I will now…[Read more]

  • @babb Sorry, I don’t have any leads for you. But I couldn’t help being astonished that 250cc 4-cylinder bikes were produced. Is it a 2-stroke or a 4 -stroke? Please post a photo. Thanks.

    @oldguy Hi Old Guy. It’s me “ThunderStrom”. The website identifies me Antal, which is correct because that’s my real name. Anyway, I hope you are well. It’s been really cold lately and I was wondering if you’ve managed to do a ride this month. Stay warm and ride carefully.

    My 2007 V-Strom 650 has 203K km on it. I intend to buy a 2018 V-Strom 650 this month. What should I do with the old bike? I’m thinking of turning it into a cafe racer. Haven’t seen many examples of cafe-V-Stroms. Would someone please point me to a website, etc. where I can get some ideas? Thanks. IMG_1458_LOW RES

    • My 2012 Dl650 VStrom rolled past the 100,000 mile (160,000km.) I ahd nbegligible maintenance, I’ll keep riding it. My sites are on teh DL1000 as I am 6’3″ 225 lbs, and I now have a 5′-11″ beautiful Scottish INterior Designer passenger, and teh DL1000 has a bit more seat area and motor umph. I’ll keep riding my DL650 solo though.
