I like that colour Wasp - it is red isn't it, not orange?

Andy, I'll grudgingly admit that Triumph looks very nice - what is it?

Here's mine on a crisp September morning:

:occasion-balloons: Its the 2007 "X" model in "C.a.n.d.y" Red (its like a Metalic dark red, I put dots in the colour word cause the site changes it to "sweets"). Your bike looks Co-ol too :grin:

Andy, I knew it was a Tiger, but I didn't know what CC it was, thank you for saying. :grin:

I saw a white one in the flesh recently and have to admit it looks really smart (unlike the white Strom which I wasn't keen on).

Hmmm, I think you did best with the black one! I am loving the white paint that seems to have become available in the last few years (it seems amazingly crisp) - last year's VFR looked ace in white I think, but that Tiger in white ain't flicking my switches.

Well I had a lot on today what with shovelling snow and being the childrens taxi service. Have only managed to drive the bike up the drive to park it so praying for a prolonged thaw and maybe get it on the rd Monday.

But you have to admit it's a pretty rear box rack  :neen:

talking of box racks...

anyone managed to take the metal lugs and catch off without snapping allenkeys?
I've broke 2 now and an the things still won't budge!

want to take them off to make sure before I order one of the cymac box plate things.

I've thought about grinding the buggers off or blowtorch but that's a bit extreme I know!

ideas please?

You'll likely need to use a 3/8''  ratchet with one of those allen key sockets on, I'm sorry I don't know the correct name for them,  I had to use one to get mine off.  Be gentle when you first apply pressure, the Suzuki fastener hardware will strip their heads quite easily.  Also, when you put them back together put a bit of copper anti-sieze on the bolts, it will make life much easier if you need to take them off again.

The Cymarc top box adapter is great by the way!

The black sump guard (or whatever its called) looks brilliant, Pity the GT doesn't come with it. I'm going to look at a GT tomorrow.

I have only ridden the 7 miles home at the moment as it was still a bit iffy round our way in places when bringing it home but it is so much smoother than the vee but must remember less engine braking  when comming up to roundabouts etc  and its alot lighter than the vee as well sounds better as it has a triumph lary can on just looks like a cannon bolted to the side
with better weather next week I should get some more miles done going to and from work and more time to bolt some more goodies that I have been allowed to buy  :grin:

Hello you

NO, its Slieve Binnian in the Mourne Mountains. A fantastic part of the world for motorcycling. Ireland really does have have some gems of motorcycling roads. There should be a V Strom weekend some here time so you can all get to see what you have been missing.

This is me picking the bike up from my office yesterday, and driving it home in Force6 gales!!
Couldn't go motorway, so went all the way through Paisley, Elderslie and Johnstone, then onto some narrow bumpy back roads, blowing a gale, and thumping down with rain, but best run on bike yet.

My bike...
Pre Vinyling...
All I have at this point, is a red reflective "bumper" tape stripe, around the top-box rear, and on the rear of the box opening bits on the side... and a double stripe (to cover the white scuff marks) on the front panels of the side boxes...
This was taken, about April/May last year... when I just got it....
Oh... and I have 2 strips of white reflective Bumper tape (see front of boxs) attached to the white plastic inner panels of the side box "light panels", so it shines through the red plastic...
You'll see what I mean...

EDIT....
Shit...
It didn't seem to work....
How do I put photos on to here, that currently reside in my Pictures folder, on my PC...
They are no-where else, like flicker, or Photobucket... just on my pc hard drive...

Help? Anyone?

Wouldn´t like to bother you with this question but comes to my eyes with curiosity that most of you ride Vees without ABS.

Bearing in mind UK is quite rainy, do you feel safe without this aid system??? isn´t so necessary as I thought???

Here in Spain is different on weather issues of course....

Thanks a lot in advance

Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Juvecu on March 17, 2011, 09:13:22
I'm on a Wee without ABS and I've never thought that I needed it once, even in some pretty hairy situations. I guess I will change my story when I lock up the front and go face down in the road. I've caused plenty of rear lockups, the Wee does a little fishtail and you simply need to let go of the rear brake and all is back to normal, it's very stable and forgiving in these situations. I've never had the fronts lock on me before and I think I'm more inclined to swerve than to try and brake hard anyway. Let's hope I don't have to eat my words  :shy:

Maybe when I buy another Wee someday I will take an ABS one for a demo ride and see if I can get it to kick in.
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: mr_diver on March 17, 2011, 10:08:29
after completing my Direct access course last year on an 04 Honda CBF500 with abs I can honestly say in all the emergency stop and swerve and stop maneuvers I did, I didn't once see the ABS light come on or any hesitation/intervention from the system. we asked the instructor how much force do you have to put through the levers to activate the ABS at around 30-40mph? he said - "I'm not exactly sure about the figures, but it's bloody terrifying when it does kick in, but it has saved a few students from higher speed accidents, but usually they drop the bike anyways, but they do it at lower speeds/stopped. I'll show you what it does when it kicks in if you want!"
he told us to go stand down the bottom of the yard behind some railings and he came down at about 35mph (32 required min for test pass) and pulled hard on the leavers, bloody hell the thing stats to lock the the system releases pressure and applies it again until it locks, then releases, over and over again until a. you release the pressure and control the braking yourself,  or b. you stop.
when he took his lid off you could see from the pale complexion, he didn't exactly enjoy it.
personally if I had a big heavy bike like a 1200gs I'd defiantly opt for it, on a smaller bike, I wouldn't go out of my way to have it. Most of the dealers, pro or very experienced bikers I've asked about ABS say if it needs to kick in, 99% of the time it's too late and you were going to have an accident anyway, but abs 'can' slow you faster sometimes.
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: luismakdcc on March 17, 2011, 11:01:28
I must confess that ABS saved me twice from falling down. First time in downtown while approaching a roundabout. The fuc.... car driver in front of me doubted if joining the round about or not and decided to stop suddenly while I was already "squeezing my Vee´s ear" (is spanish slang and means you are sppeding up). regretfully I got on a pedestrian crossing....the ABS ran as expected....

The second time was while facing a left bend and mate before me used brakes in the middle of that bend. Had to get back to normal position and went straight to road shoulder, 20 cm. more and had been rolling down the slope. Was my fault of course due to get stuck to my mate...since then on I keep distances.
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Scudnut on March 17, 2011, 20:42:10
On the Wee the ABS is operational wen the ABS light goes off, as soon as you pull off in fact.

To test the ABS the salesman told me to get to 50 mph on a straight road and slam both brakes on, it took me a while to pluck up the courage but it worked, it came to a very fast stop without much juddering.

I've had to do it at about 40 when a mail lorry pulled out on me, in that case it slowed me quick enough to swerve around the lorry, I'm sure without ABS I would have locked up the fronts.

The only hairy moments were when aproaching the lights going around the traffic I rode some gravel and the ABS must have been confused because it didn't want me to stop.

and..

In the wet a car changed lanes, the ABS didn't stop me in time because of the releasing cycle, although the car came off worse on that occasion, them electric door mirrors ain't cheap.

Hello Luis

I have to agree that the blue is a wonderful shade for the bike. I was lucky enough to get the side cases with the bike and the previous owner had never used them.

As for the kids my son is now bike mad but favourite is currently the Ninja, mainly cos of the colour lol. My ex has told me that the kids aren't allowed on the back but they just say they won't tell her lol and who am I to argue lol

nowt wrong with yellow
Totaly agree with you there mate. I've had a couple of bikes that I have had respayed yellow. The fact that I worked in a forklit truck factory that actually made yellow forklifts and had lots of "free paint" and some really helpfull painters, has nothing to do with it  :shrug:

Interesting crash bars, never seen them before, they look to be very close to the plastics too. Do you know who makes them?
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Gassoon on April 18, 2011, 08:49:41
Bike looks great steve...seems like its got plenty of kit already on - is that a baglux? And thlike Juv says the crash bars look sound. what's first on the shopping list ? (after more rides, that is!)
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Steve33 on April 18, 2011, 09:23:28
Pipes - yes, they are fruity. I'll have to get used to them - never had pipes before that I could hear whilst riding. The bike also came with the original silencers as well - DAMN they're heavy!

Crashbars - Touratech. Fitted by the PPO (Previous-Previous-Owner) back in 2004.

Extras - lots of them. Centre stand, baglux harness and bag, touring Scottoiler, crash bars, Datatool 3 (mixed blessing, never had much luck with DataTool), Alphadotted, full Givi luggage, handlebar brace, 12V power socket, vented touring screen, nearly-new Tourances, Autocom and those previously mentioned Remus carbon fibre end cans.

It was these goodies that overpowered the convenience of part-exing my current bike on a dealer sale (2004 650 Transalp if anyone wants one)

The only thing missing is heated grips, as this bike has only ever been out of the garage April - September. However, can't quite think about heated grips while the weather is this warm (plus my bank account needs to stop smoking before I spend any more).

First on the list of things to do is a service (incomplete history and it only did 55 miles last year, so it's probably due).

So far I'm enjoying it, but need to think about doing something about the 3000 RPM "chudder". Those silencers are too loud to drive above it all the time without annoying all my neighbours. I'll see what it's like after the service and a few more miles.
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Juvecu on April 18, 2011, 11:22:28
Remus might sell some DB-Killer baffles for the silencers. You can check Ebay too and you might get some generic ones (most cans are very similar), try get them in stainless steel if you can so they will last. +1 for doing a service soon, new oil filter and oil at the least.

Day I picked up my Wee!  :lala: First bike I'd been on since passing direct access a few weeks before....rode it 120 miles home! Was shattered!! Had to stop a few times to refuel myself with a yorkie or two!

(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5141/5686831571_25e706cfe4.jpg)

On my first trek up to Scotland, before I made my panniers. Had some soft panniers but wasn't at all happy with the fit, so just packed light.

(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5242/5687401822_dea05c402e.jpg)

Fully loaded for a family holiday in Wales. Really chuffed with how the boxes look. Did em myself with rivets and sealant and all!  :fix:  Thought rivets looked much better than folded and welded. Just need to add some stickers and what not.

Hello All.
There are some magnificent machines displayed here. It s great to check out some different accessories and touring set-ups.
I thought I would add mine to the thread. A sunny winters day in Adelaide South Australia. A great oportunity to try out my fork upgrade and Euro Sporty Screen. You won't see too many of these screens on Australian bikes.
Cheers Ian

I'm in the fortunate position of now owning my 2nd Wee..
This is my K4 which I sold in 2009..
(http://i623.photobucket.com/albums/tt312/Pigglummps/CIMG0186Small.jpg)
When I sold her she had centre stand, top case with 'move-it-back-a-bit' mod, engine bars and bash plate in silver and MRA screen (the shorter one was all that was available then. I had a Corbin Seat too but removed that and sold it (to raggydan) but it didn't fit his ABS bike and he sold it on again..
I then had a short health-enforced break - then tore up the tarmac with a Piaggio X9 maxi-scoot - I didn't save any pictures...after a few months of hooning about on that - seemingly everywhere flat-out I traded it for this..
(http://i623.photobucket.com/albums/tt312/Pigglummps/CIMG0162.jpg) which I kept for about 5 months. then bought the current Wee and sold the Peg privately..
This brings us up to date, mods so far are gel seat, the 37 litre Shad top case and spacing the screen back at the bottom to improve buffetting. MRA and MADSTAD are planned..

Been looking at other people's bikes in this thread for some time and it occurred to me that I haven't posted a pic of mine yet. Here's it is, fully loaded on our recent tour to the Netherlands. This photo was taken at the services at Junction 2 on the M40. Those are Krauser 40 litre panniers, the top box is a Givi Maxia E55 and the tank bag is a Bagster Cross'R (it's 18l litre unexpanded, as in the picture, but can expand to 25 litres.) Total luggage space possible with this setup is 160 litres.

Juv, is that a back rest thingy from JML strapped to your topbox??
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Juvecu on July 02, 2011, 22:06:17
Yep, the good lady uses it on her computer chair. It has a knobbly bit in the middle that's quite supportive. She didn't get along with the Givi top box backrest, being a shorty it pressed too high up for her. This thing worked very well all the way. It has an elastic strap around the back that you'd normally put around the chair back. What I did was to take the topbox off, then to put the strap under the rear rack, then put the topbox back on. That way it stays in place nicely and you can leave it on the bike when you park. Cheap, but effective :)

The bash plate came from the Vstrom Accessory catalog. There was a Xpedition bike in the dealers and the bash plate fitted was a bit different, Mine has the Suzuki painted silver etc.

Very pleased with it upto now.

I guess my 3 year old Wee is 'average' mileage for a bike these days. It has done 4,000 miles a year.

But some people buy a bike and then NEVER use it apart from a sunny bank holiday in August  :auto-dirtbike:

My bike is in fair to good condition, but it has been used and I had to work hard to get it up to its present standard.

I had to work very hard to clean the visible exhaust and various bit around the engine.....

I bought the bike from a dealer and it was overall in good condition, but I do worry I may have OCD when it comes to cleaning my bike. Am I the only one?

Thanks Piglumps.  My next buy is the Madstad, as the only thing I don't like about the bike is the massive wind-noise and I'm hoping the vario-bracket will fix that.  The rubber mud-flap isn't working too well either, so I expect I'll get a "mudguard-extender" too but that's a more affordable at less than a tank full of juice.

I like yours - particularly the black alloy cases but I couldn't stretch to the [considerable] extra dosh for that model

Adv.John. The bike looks grand and obviously having an alternative place to stretch the legs is great. Bit worried though' that those bars stick out a bit further than anything else. They will be the first thing hitting the deck. Is that mounting strong enough for that? As I said I do like the idea of alternative leg stretch and have seen some fold up ones that would eliminate what looks like a problem area.

Thanks :thumb: I think I need to swap my Givi crash bars for some of the newer style Suzuki/SW-Motech ones. The Suzuki/SW-Motech ones has a lower front crossbar and this makes it better to fit motorway footrests to. The crossbar on the Givi one is too high for it to be comfy.

it does scratch nicely on the road when 2 up going round corners! almost all corners lol

+1 for Black....here's mine.......this was the campsite for our Stromtrekkers II weekend.

Black crash bars are here waiting to go on, I just haven't got around to them yet. I'm also trying to decide if I get a black bash plate as well as I'm going to have to adjust the current one anyway :shrug: . Then I'll be on the lookout for a black heat guard....and black discs....and black fork tubes...

Might be interested on going to one of these events, but looking elsewhere maybe the off road bits would be to much for me on a heavy bike like my wee strom.  Plus no way I could do the off road bits with someone on the back :)

Ooh dear, that sounds like a design fault! Have you come to get an idea of the trade in value against one with a proper twin engine?  :grin:

(I know it's parallel, I was being facetious!  :neen: )

I considered a Versys before I bought my Strom - they look good and get good reviews too. Looks nice in black.

Post by: Juvecu on October 25, 2011, 11:17:01
I like the later Versys more than the original. They seem decent little bikes and the later one has been improved  to fix some of the older one's ailments and has less of an ugly face than the old one had. If it had a V-twin engine it would probably sell phenomenally well as tall road bike. One gripe I have with it is the stupid thing that you can only have the panniers or the top box, not both at the same time. Is that still the same on the new one?

My fault, come onto a Vstrom website and what did I expect :bawl: :obscene-drinkingchug:  I did consider the Vstrom, but am a bit pro Kawasaki and Piglumps on here who works with me, already had one. Well he is greedy he has had two actually!

I am sure that I have seen a newer Versys with both panniers and top box, but not 100%? I will be looking for a top box, as my better half is happy enough on the back and up for getting out there, So I guess I will soon find out if there is a problem getting a top box. I actually have grown to like the headlight, and you can't see it when you are on the bike?!!? The exhaust is fine down underneath, but seems like a water trap for anything being chucked down off of the back wheel [ so we will see how it goes]

It is good for overtaking, the power [ even with the missing cylinder :angry-tappingfoot:  ] is very well set for throttle response and everyday use. A world apart from My old ZX6R or ZXR750 I had previously. All be it not as civilised as the Vstrom.

Feel free to convert me - have not ridden the Strom [ I should have really ]

Post by: Juvecu on October 25, 2011, 14:14:30
Get a ride on the new Wee Strom, I think you'll find the engine surprisingly fun :thumb: Another bonus of these bikes (Versys included) is the riding position. Sitting upright is not only better for your back and arms, it helps you to see over traffic. This is very useful when you're filtering or on the motorway (particularly to spot a big braking chain and back off before the cars close to you start braking.)

Post by: Oldie on October 25, 2011, 19:58:32
Here's my posting from the Deauville forum earlier today which I thought I'd share  :neen:

"Firstly, the bike is better than I expected and is now a favourite of mine.

It's certainly not what I'd call a heavy machine and has a surprisingly low seat (I'm 5'8" and can flat foot) and has lovely balance. It's also an attractive looking bike, albeit with a slightly dated look, and it comes with many of the basic "essentials" ie a screen that works, crash bars and a centre stand. This one also has a mudguard extenda, which I think is a must, plus the excellent hand and leg fairings and the wide lids. There's actually not much that I want to add to the bike apart from an Optimate hook up.

Rambo had already told me that the front tyre was reaching the end of it's life so I swapped it over for a new BT21. Prior to that, the handlebars did a merry jig on deceleration with hands off the bars ) but the new rubber is fantastic and I've been running it in on a few twisties up here. There is a bit of a notch on the steering at 12 o'clock but I reckon that I could get away with loosening the bearing adjuster, rather than go for a complete bearings replacement. Only notice it at low speed turns where it tends to over-steer once past the notch. Anyway, I'll try the adjustment first (thanks Rob for your technical pages ).

This is my first shaft drive and I expected to feel the difference but, to be honest, it seems to be much the same as my chain bikes (maybe I'm just not sensitive enough ) The ride is very compliant and I can see why folks take them on long distance journeys (which is why I bought it in the first place) and it sits very nicely at around 75mph - quite relaxing really. It is equally easy to ride at walking pace which gives plenty of time to look around at give-ways etc. On the engine itself, there is less instant power than on, say, the Suzuki V twins, but I haven't found this to detract from the riding experience, possibly because it seems to suit the overall nature of the bike. Another point, and unless it's just my imagination, the Deau seems to bank well over on bends, more so than other bikes, but that may be down to the low seat giving that impression. Anyway, it's not a problem as I like that style of riding and it feels very sure-footed.

I'm so impressed with the overall dynamics of the machine, and it's practicality, that I will definitely be looking to purchase a new one at some time in the future. In the meantime, I can think of no better bike to ride throughout the winter and into the Spring without having to check the weather forecast first. Great bike"

Post by: Oldie on October 26, 2011, 06:40:53
What I find most surprising is the very high price of a new Doh, compared with the new Wee. The Wee is a far better bike , apart from weather protection perhaps, and it's not as if these Spanish built bikes are endowed with the usual Honda build quality (common faults are steering bearings, exhaust, water pump and fuel pump). However, I still love it and I reckon that it has to be a candidate for "best winter hack". If I had the cash then I would be hapy to have my Bonneville, a new Doh and a new Wee (in orange) sitting in the garage :lala:

Oldie, you just described my dream garage...

but I would swap the new wee for the Blue K6 I have- love the colour.

and the Bonnie for a Bonnie Speedmaster.

hang on, if I get to 'look after' the old mans K7 Doh, the mrs now wants the new red Speedmaster for an anniversary present and I have the wee-  VICTORY! :lala:

OK not bad, but I will wait til the summer and take some piccies at Goldwing rallys :)
Standard on 1800 is

Stereo (I think 7 buttons)
Sat Nav
Suspension adjuster
Headlight adjuster
Screen adjusters (2)
ABS
Air bag
Dip siwtch
Indicator switch
Horn
Hazasr
Starter
Reverse swithc
Kill switch
Clock
Fuel gauge
Air compressor for suspension
air presure gauge for suspension

And then of course you can add
CB Radio and Handlebar controls
Fancy horn
Sat Nav as the Honda one has old maps and costs £250 to update
Drinks holder
Accessory socket
Cigeratte lighter socket C/W cigarette lighter
Up to 8 swithces for addiotnal pretty lights
I pod player with connection to standard audio.
Mobile phone
Volt meter
Amp meter
OIl pressure gauge
Tow bar
Trailer


And that's just thinking off of the top on my head :)

Which seat have you got there?

Had it custom made for me from because the wee's  standard  seat  was uncomfortable after an hour for me,
So had it made at motorbike-seats.co.uk for £275 and as you can see professionally well made, and I can last up to 3 to 4 hours on my wee now.

Spent a couple of hours yesterday cleaning my (2008) V-Strom DL1000GT (I mainly use WD40), had a brilliant run out today, just a shade under 100 miles covered in nice and at times sunny weather here in central Scotland, here's a photo just before the run;

That's really shiny, I can almost see my reflection in that photo :liar: What's that yellow bit sticking out below it?
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: macvisual on March 01, 2012, 21:17:14
The yellow bit is a piece of oval plastic that sits on the ground and your side stand sits on it so it doesn't sink into the grass and fall over etc........it spreads the weight load. Any bike dealer I'm sure will have these free if you need one, handy.

I use 'WD40' for all engine and casings. Autoglym instant show shine polish, fabulous stuff! ScottOiler filled with 'chain-saw' oil, cheap as chips to buy and it's anti-fling, been using this for many years with excellent results.

Chunky tyres! Does it make a noise like "Prrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" when they roll along slowly?
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: FastLoe on April 04, 2012, 09:45:31
The Heidenau Tyres are quit, even with my Shoei Hornet I don't hear them. They give a lot off grip on tarmac (wet and dry) and gravel. In sand the front tyre performs less, lot of grip on the backside.
I have this set for 15.000Km (9500 Ml) andthe front tyre is as good as new. The one on the back will be replaced within the next 5000Km.

This is probably the last month that the Vee is blue. I'm going to change the bikes color. Look at my avatar for a hint  :shock:

Must say that blue on your strom is a brilliant tone, Fastloe, shame to lose that, but 'each to his own'! :)

Will it affect the resale value, though? Maybe get a tank and couple of panels from the breakers, spray them and put your lovely blue ones in storage? :shrug:

If you have your image saved on Photobucket simply open it then click on the IMG code, it will say copied as you do. Then paste the code (Ctrl V) into the thread post. Lots of other advice in the pinned threads at the top of the pictures section.

I can see a new Wee if I shut my eyes real tight and think really hard! Then my head hurts and I have to stop.

We see it a fair bit here just shows that you are doing the right thing and gives the birds a free meal.  Foxes are a big problem in Australia and most farmers will be out to get as many as they can before the spring lambs arrive.  The name Whitefox came about because the bike was changed from Fox orrange to white when new.  I think I will change it back though.

Looking pretty good I think, except for the alloy bashplate  :GRR:

Been saving me pennies but it may come down to a toss of the coin....

A new black bashplate http://www.v-strom.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6456&p=112056#p112056,

Or new black exhaust http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Suzuki-DL-650-Vstrom-V-Strom-GPR-Exhaust-road-legal-carbonox-version-/130639444681?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item1e6ab7bac9....

Here is my latest addition to the garage.

Just sold my BMW f650gs and needed a bike pretty quick as I am riding the Stella Alpina Rally in italy in a weeks time 2300 miles.
I think it will be a great bike for the road part of the journey but not to sure how it will cope with the mountain trails in the Alps.
So I thought I would give the little Wee a try.
It's a 2007 57 plate 1 owner with 8k miles,650 x,with full Suzuki history.
Had my first ride out around North Wales yesterday 200 miles and very pleased so fare.

I'm tempted to do the trade-in but
1) I've modded my bike heavily and it's taken me all this time to make it into the bike I always wanted it to be
2) I've got my eye on the 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer (not as a trade-in, but as an additional bike to enjoy)

Gassoon, many thanks for that. To be honest I have had sports bikes almost exclusively for 20 odd years, a very brief interlude with a Versys which I could not get on with (front end always felt vague under braking, and too much vibration) some 12months later jumped back onto a ZX10R for 3 years but age has started to catch up with me and anything longer than 1/2 hour and my wrist ached, backed ached etc, etc. Back in August my mate and I did a trade in and bought two brand new Vstrom 650's and I can honestly say it is the best alround bike I have ever owned.

I'm so liking the new shape Busa's presently, some decent deals out there in bike land.

I have a strom for commuting and a gsxr 750 with carbon, akrapovic, full map etc etc,for play, it doesn't get out much though, the stroms so good at everything. OK down on power but it still shifts OK when pushed hard.

Looks toasty warm, what you on about?  :grin:

I ventured out to the garage, warmed both bikes up, getting gassed in the process, then turned them off and went back over to the house.

The snow has gone apart from a bit on the grass here and there, but I haven't seen the temp gauge I have go above 2 degrees since Thursday.

Looks like another week on the pushbike to work then.  :character-yoshi:

Silver Strom bought 8 weeks ago and hardly ridden. I've changed the standard pipes for Venom but jobs to do are change crashbars for my old ones so I can fit the Motech belly pan, HID the headlights, convert to HID and fit the ring projector spotlights, Power socket under seat and associated spaghetti, autocom intercom, MRA screen, got all the bits just need a few hours.....

The joys of shopping in January, the dealer made the fatal mistake of informing me that the bike had
been sitting in their other shop for a while & hadn't moved "Ker-ching"....tyre kicking excuse.

Had the price dropped by £500 in 5 mins + full year's MOT .....
Got home to think about it, rang 'em up & got a new rear Metzler Tourance fitted FOC  & extra standard screen  thrown in :thumb:
Only 1 previous owner & no wet riding (boy is it in for a shock now!)

An old bouncy 900 Divvy shafty.. I see you have the leading links, sort the rear shock and eliminate the bounce altogether.. :)

Love it.

Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Firestorm on March 27, 2013, 15:39:27
Thanks.
The Divvy was bought specifically to do this to as its shaft and a tubular frame, primarily for the Elefant next January when my Mate retires. I made the leading links and bought an old Sidecar to restore. Shocks are Suzuki GS1000G that came with the Suzuki when |I bought it new in 1982 so not bad for 31 year old shocks! Front mudguard is an Enfield Bullet rear one that's been modified a tad, steering damper is a trusty old VW Beetle one. Rear shock is off a Fazer with jack up links - not too bad with a light Sidecar. All in all I'm pretty pleased.

B4ndit it's over the Peak District. Once named the most dangerous road in Britain the A537 Macclesfield to Buxton (cat and fiddle) There are average speed camera's on route today, but the road and the bends are still good fun even at 50mph it's still knee down material and still one of my favourite routes. If anyone on the ST6 gets the chance it is well worth the ride over that particular stretch.  :thumb:

Collected my new Glee Monday 8th July
SW Motech Crash Bar, I don't like the Suzuki bars, Sump guard ( nice two tone) , Centre stand (Centre stand is a little tender so bike needs to be parked on the flat or facing uphill or it may well roll off the stand. On the upside it is much easier than my "V" was to get off the stand.
Suzuki Knuckle guards.
Oxford Hot grips
Givi airflow screen
mudguard extender
Givi Rack, Top box and side boxes Boxes removed and stored as they are huge and are too big to get bike into shed.
Migsel SatNAv bracket on order.
Aprillia mirrors being considered as is foot peg lowering kit and bar risers. ( does it ever end?)

Hello
I'm Steve from Rochdale and I've just joined the forum.
After 17yrs of not being on a bike I bought a 2007 V-Strom 650 on Saturday (24/08/13)

Here's a piccy  :)

Nice and clean :thumb: How many miles on it?

It's a "Touring" model BTW, but your V5C should say that. It might be on a 2007 plate, but that looks like a K6 to me (which makes it a 2006 model.)
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: mr_diver on August 30, 2013, 20:02:53
give us a pic of the other side and we'll tell you if it's a K4-6 or K7 onwards...

mine is a K6 registered in 07 and the mrs marauder is a k9 on a 10 plate.

K4-6 are the best and only require 2 plugs at major service and k7 and later require 4-

Blue is also the faster colour and attracts more of the opposite sex.  :lala:

Givi Touring screen - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400528819720? ... 1497.l2649 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400528819720?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649)

Fitted to Madstad bracket.  :thumb:

cold, I was looking at either getting the Givi Airflow screen or the Madstad brackets for my AL3 model, don't know if they're fit though? As they seemed like more viable option. I'm about 6ft 1, so don't know what screen I would get along with the brackets?

Must admit I never put a great deal of thought into which screen I'd buy. Knew I wanted adjustable brackets so the Madstad was a cert, I just ended up buying a screen that was slightly bigger than the OE. I knew I'd be OK if I had the ability to try different heights/angles and so far I'm happy with the reduced buffeting. Done way over 3000 miles in 8 weeks so it's all good so far.  :thumb:

rear disc is massive eh! - the hub centre is large too - sensors for ABS and the like in there. Also some sort of hub-drive type arrangement too.

off road pretensions? starbucks pretensions more like!

I like the blue  :thumb:

Top tip for spokes (well, it worked great on the Guzzi) is to use a wetting agent like Mucoff or similar. Hose the bike down, a quick squirt (ooer mrs) and hose off. Give it a quick pass by with some wash & wax on a sponge and they look like new. Not so good if you have chain drive mind (Xt660).

I'll try that - I fear they already have some staining in them though, which mud-off might not deal with. could have used some ACF50 from new really.

Lovely bike geekay! :thumb: And for some reason to my eye looks lower than others I've seen...what's the seat height?  :eusa-doh:  (Not sure I know what answer I want, as my tongue might loll out of me mouth if it's a low number... :) )
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: geekay on January 07, 2014, 20:04:33
its standard ride height - and the seat is in the lower of the two positions - the higher adds another 1.5 inches (well, 35mm) to the seat height - I think the settings are 845mm vs 875mm

if you look at the tank, there is a "cut out" that indicates where the seat would arse up to the tank in the higher setting.

Its not a massively tall bike - similar but slightly shorter than the Honda cross tourer. Much shorter than the monster that is a R1200GS adventure and probably similar to the 'regular' R1200GS. I'm only 5'8' ish but its not a problem at all - very similar in feel to the v-strom 650 really.
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Gassoon on January 07, 2014, 20:22:27
Thanks geekay, I'll have to sit on one sometime, it sounds possible (I'm 5'8-9ish, but shortish legs) :thumb:
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: geekay on January 07, 2014, 20:24:31
you might find it OK - in fairness, at 5'8", what height I do have is in my legs, but still it might be OK.

they do a lower (thinner?) seat too, or there is always lowering kit options, as for the storm - but I would say if you manage on the v-strom at the regular height, you'll probably be OK on a tenere with the seat in the low position.

And then I got a bit bored and tried loads of other bikes. But realised there is only one bike that does it all, so I bought a new one.  :)

Finally hit the 1000 mile marker on my Vstrom. Decided to dedicate the whole weekend to add all the toys that have been taking up so much room in my garage. From Memory, includes - Givi, SW-Motech, Puig, Adventuretech, Eastern Beaver, SVracing, Admore lighting, Powerbronze, and some others. I'm very happy with the result  :)

Damn! forgot to take a pic with the luggage attached.........................

Now to get rid of a mountain of cardboard boxes

I don't like the seat shape but have a spare - I intend to flatten off the ridge and build it up in the forward area as I find myself stuck in that dip.

Other than that after the first 1,000 miles am very happy.

Is it just me or does that look like the low seat option? Even a stock Wee seat is usually higher than that? Might want to consider selling/swapping it for a higher one. Plenty of stock Wee seats going around on here/eBay anyway so you should be able to replace it easily.

Post by: iansoady on May 05, 2014, 11:15:59
I actually got the seat from someone here (can't remember who) when it was described as a DL1000 model. I fitted it at the end of summer so never really tried it till last week. I've now put the original that came with the bike back so will give that a try before attacking this one.

The original is firmer anyway so that may just make the difference. I have the peg lowering plates fitted but still could do with a more open knee angle.

Yes, I like the silver frame too!

The bike has 39,000 miles on but has been very well cared for - there is very little corrosion and no bodges. I'm very pleased with it and am planning an early September trip to France.

A DL1000 seat should be somewhere between the two.

Your's looks very low to me.
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: iansoady on May 05, 2014, 14:49:16
Many thanks that's useful. Mine looks like the lower one (it has been recovered and I wonder whether some padding was lost in the process. It is very soft).

The one I have on now was the one that was on the bike when I bought it. Interestingly, it has "High Seat" written in felt-tip pen on the base......

This is it (sorry for the messy background)

Because it goes with a yellow bike? Actually, it's a Purolator Pure-One PL14610 on a Bales adapter and that's what colour the filter is. http://balestech.com/filter.htm (http://balestech.com/filter.htm)

Oops! is too late to change the spelling in the original post.

I did that because of http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Consum ... OilFilters (http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Consumables.html#OilFilters) and that I can never seem to leave well enough alone. There is a Vee out there with 325,000 miles on generally castigated Fram oil filters so I don't expect it will make a real difference. The Pure-One filters are cheap besides being good though.

The stock spigot is removed and replaced by the Bales adapter. http://balestech.com/s_instruct.htm (http://balestech.com/s_instruct.htm) shows the instructions for the older Stroms. The Glee adapter is identical to the stock item that holds the heat exchanger on except for the thread pitch on the open end. A 30mm socket or spanner will handle that.

I think you've got it. The stock spigot for the Wee and Vee doesn't have a hex to grab. The Glee spigot has a 30mm hex because it isn't glued in. Besides holding the filter, it bolts the heat exchanger that replaced the old oil cooler to the crankcase.

I know it seems quite incomprehensible going from TEX to Strom but...
The TEX is a good bike on the move, looks great and gets cars moving out of the way!
(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5579/14106723339_961f8abc71_m.jpg)

For me though, maneuvering it at home and work is just too much with its weight and my injuries.
The bike is quite high so if I was about four inches taller it probably wouldn't be an issue, but I'm not. To put it in perspective, when I fuel, I have to lift the pump handle to just above my midriff, and I'm 5ft 8...it carries the weight high and wide! The Vee is about 30kg lighter and a little 'slimmer'.
The TEX front is a bit 'floaty' as well, which is doing little for my confidence after being subjected to a massive off last year.
The test ride I had on the Vee was good, I felt more confident on it on roads I would have not tackled the same way on the TEX.
I expected the Vee to be a budget bike, to some degree it's pricey for what it is when you compare with what else is available, but I don't need an off-roader. I want an adventure bike that is easy to live with, the TEX isn't the bike for me.
The 'ride by wire' on the TEX is VERY sensitive and takes some getting used to. It's more flighty than the Multistrada and on my first ride I found it quite terrifying! Again though, if my arms were more down than up, it may not be an issue.
Don't get me wrong though, the TEX is not to be dismissed, it is all down to personal opinion and requirement.

I know you'll be interested in the latest photo of my VTR.

(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3858/14387890223_7d5f05114c.jpg)

Wheels powder coated white, new bearings and Pirelli Tyres.

I got the Beowulf oval end cans on so I now have a full size number plate.

MOT is due in a fortnight and I need to obtain and fit rear indicators as the existing ones are built into the rear light and it seems this is not legal here in the UK.

Any suggestions ?

wOOw, stunning looking VTR, like them I do. That looks a minter, health to enjoy. A neighbour of mine is trying to sell me his VTR at the minute but low funds don't allow.

Yea, I use Adobe Lightroom 5 and can manipulate images and tweak them a we bit, if you'd seen that original image it looks so so flat and boring.

So I give it a we boost here and there (self taught), it takes me about 10/15 minutes to get that image the way I want it.
I know maybe it's a tad over the top looking, but it's different and semi abstract, I like that personally.

Pete

I'm a purist when it comes to photography. I loved the dark room in collage. Hated the digital suite.
And digital manipulation is destruction on the truth and creation of a lie.

Or as my dark room tutor told me, "Digital photography is the art of taking bad photographs and making them look passable to the one-educated"  :shrug:

I've been bugging the mrs to let me set up a dark room in the spare room, but no luck so far.

do a search for Ansel Adams- most of his photographs were taken on an 8"x10" large format camera, he carried up mountains with the heavy wooden tripod and took up to an hour to set up each shot. Oh did I mention the bag of gear, lenses, and filter he also had to carry up the mountain.

So what happens when you attach a lens with a different focal length to that approximated by human vision to the front of the camera? Or spend hours dodging and burning (as the late and very great Ansel did (read 'The Print' by him)?

I think there's a difference between outright ('over') processing which Macvisual does which is clearly overt and obvious (and therefore doesn't seek to mislead); subtle enhancement of a scene to accentuate a feature (through changing lens, dodging/burning, curves etc); and 'heavy' post processing which presents a view which never existed whilst pretending it did (a simple example might be removing a pylon or painting in a blue sky).

Yeah, I maybe left out that I'm pretty much in broad agreement with Mr Diver on this one! I don't like manipulation of the last type, it just seems dishonest and deliberately misleading. (I actually don't like the style of Mac's stuff, but that just my personal taste, others naturally will like it.)

One of the great things about digital is it's a much cheaper way to learn about photography (and light and form etc) compared to using film. In some senses it's a shame that it's possible to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear with digital, as apart from anything else it's led to a loss of income for professionals as every man and his dog turns out, if not silk purses at least little credit card holders, with nothing more than a camera phone and a copy of "Click 'n' fix v7.4". But to those that know, it's still a skill, you still need fairly decent kit to get top notch results, you still need to remember thirds and all of the basics, and remember that an extra minute spent setting up saves you 10 post-processing. Etcetera.

I suppose if you understand the technology more then it colours your opinion (pardon the pun). I'm very low level when it comes to photography. If an image pleases me then I'm happy. Just goes to prove that bliss is just another word for ignorance! :)

when In college I was shooting Black and white film so much I started to see in black and white. I don't mean I couldn't see colours, but my brain worked out if something looked good only if the contrast worked well in greyscale.  :crazy:

Took me a bout 18 months to stop doing it. since then, my photos in colour have been crap as my brain still isn't right with colour... it's been 12 years since I left college.

The B&W vershion does work much better for me and doesn't set off my 'digitally enhanced spidey senses'

Taken On a Zenith Em (made in the CCCP) camera with a 45mm lens. old tech, very old tech, but very effective and I mainly used Ilford FP4 125ISO film so got very fine quality grain.

YES! I know exactly what you mean! :thumb: When you spend enough time on photography you definitely see the world differently. One of the aspects of that which I didn't enjoy was that it made it difficult to live normally, because everything gets framed in your head. So, for example, your other half has a rant at you and you just think "Hmm. 28mm, F2.8 at 1/125th". Not good!

Zenith - nice, reminds me of this, which I bought about 10 years ago and have yet to use: http://cameras.alfredklomp.com/lubitel166u/ (http://cameras.alfredklomp.com/lubitel166u/). I liked XP2 because you could push it.

we had a few of those dual/twin lens cameras in college, never got on with them, film was expensive, a bugger to load, dark room to change the film, all to discover your shots are way off being framed correctly.  :GRR:

I bought myself a 110mm camera. It was just like a massive Zenith. All black, weighted a tonne and never worked very well. One tutor leant me his full Hasselblad, set up... I was 18 and walking around the ruffest areas on South Wales with £15,000 in lenses in the case.  :crazy:
After using that wonderful craftsman made bit of kit, my Chinese copy of a Russian copy of a basic Italian camera went on ebay, think I got £80 for it  :grin:
I then bought a Pentax Spotmatic 2 with a selection of lenses, telephoto extender (x2, x4 x8) for £25 and it's my favourite camera. Works better than any Hasselblad, and more reliable, but limited to the 35mm film.  :shrug:

The mrs had now shown and interest in Photography after showing her a load of my collage pic tonight, I may get that dark room soon.  :neen:

Mr Pete Macvisual - The [s:ejwv44z4]mono[/s:ejwv44z4] Black and White version of the picture is fantastic and I would be more than happy to see it on the 2015 Forum Calendar. The colour version looks like it should be on a Macdonalds Happy Meal Box. I guess different people like different things and some people will feel the opposite way round to me, but I do like the Black and White.

It's all a bit of fun photography.

Many (many) yrs ago I shot using 10"x8", 5"x4", 6x7, 6x6 and 35mm film formats etc, I'd my own darkroom and hand printed my own b/w images........all self taught.

I've recently bought a mint Mamiya C330s Twin Lens Reflex with only two rolls out through it in its lifetime,  absolutely mint. Haven't had much time to shoot with it lately.

So I like to be a tad creative with my work, some may or may not like it, that's what makes the world go round eh.

Pete

The trouble with using Ansel Adams as an example of 'straight' photography is that he was a master manipulator. 'Clearing Winter Storm' for example had over a dozen different exposures, burns and dodges to create the image he wanted. He famously said that his images were not true to life but were what he wanted to express. He would have loved photoshop, I am certain. If you want straight unmanipulated photography you are as likely to find it in a digital artist as in a darkroom proponent.

yeah, Lauren won't let me take her to school, I can't understand it, I would have loved to have been taken to school on my dads bike when I was her age but he was always already at work by the time we got up.

She doesn't come out with me a massive amount, enough though which is quite nice. I took her to the Ace last year and she keeps asking me to go back so that has to be good.

I am sure in another year or 2 (she's 12 now) she will want to be taken good places to shop and the deal will be I will take her, but if it's nice, it has to be on the bike!

I think I might get her some new gear at Christmas as well as she is growing out of some bits, that always refreshes her interest!

as soon as they took compression bandage off it blew up again n is even more painful now
although madly it does feel stronger
consultant supposed to be calling me tomorrow with results
as to whitby, don't know, will have to go get strom back off mts soon n on about a run up to a friend in cumbria
but plan was drive up n sling it in van, could poss meet up for a run at some point though
still hopin re cadwell
would really like to take exup to the classic day on 26th sept :-) even if I only trundle round steadily
there's a road bikes only one 30th sept n oulton 15th oct
when is it u were talkin?
have u n the big pie booked yet?
the 2 brothers pipe on the new exup sounds thunderous
its just as special as the first one, n love the flat bars
n it is quite special underneath
id say a wolf in sheeps clothes but can't imagine callin an exup a sheep so lord knows what that makes the new one :-)

I miss this bike. :(

Wondered if I'd ever read those words from you. I watched you umm and ahh a while back and thought if you do sell you might regret it.

I regularly have to stop myself from popping an ad in biketrader to sell my beloved S2R..... I rarely use it as my Glee is everything I want from a bike these days. I'm going to embed those four words you wrote in my thick skull and make sure I never succumb to temptation.

Yes, take heed of my mistake.

I do miss the bike, but I don't regret selling it, it made way for the DRZ, which is great. I should have found a way to make room for the DRZ without selling the zx6 though, it wasn't money, just space.

I'm looking for another.

Got it at last. Collected yesterday, rode 60 miles home through rain. I was prepared for this, as during the train journey to collect, every cow I passed, in every field was lying down. Not that I believe in old wives tales, ooooooho no.

Some of you know I was toying with the idea of selling my Glee.

Due to serious under use I did the deed and part exchanged my lovely Glee for a 'W'. Yes I know it's back to the future and all that. My walk around review of the Kawasaki W 800......

Sold it at John W. Groombridge in East Sussex. Got a 2014 with 2,000 miles on the clock.

Been brilliant communicating with you all and I shall keep in touch from time to time.

Hondaman

no I part exchanged it for the W which is a 2014 model.

In an ideal world I'd of kept both, but I couldn't justify keeping the V Strom although I loved it.

Part exchanged it at John W. Groombridge in East Sussex.

Hello User650, new here just signed up. Is that top picture at York Suzuki? I think I test rode your old bike a few weeks ago before putting a deposit down on an XT.

Quick question XT650JIM. On your test ride on Paul's old 'bike, did you notice a smell of  heavily discounted fish & chips?

Thunderroad put jen's new bike next to Son of Milz's Vee2 after her test ride. Funny how they put it next to a bike it'll ride with at some point.

Didn't fancy the wheels or the beak of the XT but I've added the bash plate & crash bars from it, and when I get rid of the OE Trailwings for Anakee 3's I'll be sorted  :thumb:

After yesterday's cancelled run to Ipswich to collect my new Glee the weather today allowed me to get there and ride back and stay dry.
Roads were bone dry in Suffolk but as soon as crossed border into Norfolk the salting from last night had kept them damp so a bit of cleaning to do so I can do a coat of FS365 to keep things nice.

MartinW I've done it again getting the photo facing the wrong way, could you adjust it again for me please. Before I try again I'll make sure my son is home as he speaks computer!

Hello there,  You asked for photos.  I rode round North America on this baby last summer, 15,000 miles in six weeks, fell off twice - onto the same shoulder! Consistent or what. This is us on our way South.  Off to Africa in a couple of weeks.  Wish me luck!  I shouldn't say this but the high point of the trip was overtaking a bunch of GS's on wet dirt and gravel.  That's where I find the DL shines.  And the friction cruise control made an h... of a difference too.

Very nice Sasha, an end can does seem to perk them up a bit, I bought a fuel diablo for mine, the longer version, and I'm very happy with it, whatever you chose, if they give the option go for the longer one, it helps with sound, and I think with torque too.

  I made these brackets at work to see if it makes a difference and it does make a big difference but I'm still not happy with the wind noise I'm still thinking about another screen or maybe a small add on ...

Yes I had same problem with wind, I'm 6'2 and couldn't seem to find a place where was out of blast so I bought Windscreen  Touring Puig Suzuki V-Strom 1000 14-16 light smoke, at first thought it was too tall but can now do 60mph with visor up. Can look over it normal riding and was only when filtering had to get use to.

I don't remember exactly but I got it from www.motea.com and I think it was about same price as on their site £62.90 including delivery.

Hiya Doboy, it's Muddy here from Carpe :)
I lurk a fair bit here as I've narrowed a new bike down to the Glee, Nc750x or the new MT07 Tracer.
Anyhow, I noticed this post of the same trip I'm planning and wondered if you could give me any tips for the journey - - dodgy roads, cops,  or anything useful really. It's a holiday and I'm house hunting in Bulgaria. I'll be getting the ferry from Ancona. Hopefully comeback through Serbia, Hungary, Austria, etc.

Cheers

Oh, and the other bikes.  My race bike is a CBR600FX.  I had one previously, but had a slight "off" at Corams at Snetterton at about 100mph.  Result was it flipped upside down 3x, landed upside down, caught fire, wrote it off.  Mega angry as I was leading the championship in my first years racing.  Bought another one, transferred the parts over, and going to compete in another round to put the other blokes in their place as to who would have won the championship if I hadn't binned it...  No pics of the new bike yet, but if anyone's interested in amature racing, feel free to have a read.

And the other toy is a Benelli Tornado, which I adore, had it years, but I hardly ever use it so thinking about selling it at some point.  Looks fantastic, sounds even better, drinks fuel and doesn't like below 30mph.

And if your really bored and want to watch some videos of the racing, trackdays, or the Benelli, I have loaaaaaads on my channel.

Market sqr in Arras. Stopped here on he way to Calais to pay respects to Great Uncle George (my grandmother's brother) killed in the Arras offensive in 1917. His body was never recovered but his name appears on the memorial in Arras along with the names of 35000 other lost souls.

Met this bloke and his Mrs. on the tunnel home. I asked him where he'd come from and he said.... Buenos Aires.... 2 years ago. This was his 2nd GS. He'd put 250k miles on the first one round North and South America. Then ordered a new one to be kitted out and collect in Munich for the next two year leg. Put my trip into perspective.

Took a trip around the North Pennines today, which gave me the first chance to get some pics of my latest strom. Went from Chester le Street to Derwent Reservoir, Hexham Racecourse, Whitfield, the clattering causeway, Hallbankgate, Eden valley, over Hartside and back down Weardale. Was scoping out a forum ride for next year but some of those roads aren't suitable for group riding. Some of them weren't suitable for single riding, being covered in cowshit. Almost took a couple of low siders slipping on the stuff.
Anyway, a couple of pics at Hartside.

Tusker - Is that hydro dipped? looks Greeeat (as Tony the tiger would say). Has it affected your insurance premium?
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Tusker on October 10, 2016, 16:17:05
yes Brocket it is indeed hydro dipped. An airbrush artiste would have wanted 1000's  .. Suspension Ink has taken over !!

I like it, I kind of took the job as part of a payment for a bike I was selling.. Right out of the trap I may not have bothered, but a deal was done and the wheels of the world keep turning..

Pyramid front m/guard extender and rear hugger, new Bridgestone tyres, sump guard, Accessory / crash bars, Cymarc footrest lowers, Cosmo fork brace, fork gaitors, Beowulf radiator and oil cooler covers, Oxford hot grips, aux power distributor, 2 x cigar lighter power outlets on right and left of dash, PD Mini chain oiler, Optimate lead, heated jacket lead, Givi top box, aux driving lights. And lastly jam tart aluminium foil Inserts for the Indicators.  Still to be completed power lead and mounts for the Garmim satnav and new screen when it arrives in the post.

Very nice. I had an identical one, bar that exhaust. How did you get on with the starting procedure? A bit quirky at first. The chap I sold mine to kept coming back asking me to show him how to do it. Don't think he understood what was actually happening or why he was doing it.

starts a treat now, carb is a twat, and took loads of getting right, but everything INCLUDING the totally seized accelerator pump is now working, starts cold hot or warm now, even after lying in a puddle of mud :)

What a tw@t! Hope the police prosecute the driver as they could have killed you. Suppose with the recent changes that's at least 6 points on their licence & a fine.

Glad you're OK and the driver has his comeuppance coming.

These clowns just don't realise what is at risk, for victims or themselves. I had a car driver miss me last year only because the outside lane was free, he swerved out just in time, anchors on at traffic lights. He then seemed totally peeved that I eyed him at the next set of lights while he was still on his phone looking more down than forward. (Perhaps I'd clocked him with something else in his hand......? T*sser!)  :roll:
Title: Re: Come on Show us Your Bike :D
Post by: Lincsman on April 23, 2017, 20:27:40
The recent fine and points on your licence is obviously no deterrent to the dicksplash that hit you.
It should be an on the spot fine of £5000 or your car / Van / Truck, crushed, and you have 1 minute to decide, if you can't decide in the 60 seconds, then both happens. If you're a tradesmen, then all you tools go into the crusher, you wouldn't have to do it to many before the word got round. We had a motorcyclist killed round here by some one on a mobile phone, she got off with it. Can you believe it, so the lesson is if you want to kill someone and get away with it, best you drive the car whilst drunk, or go on the mobile phone whilst in the car.
Where's the justice for these people killed my these morons.
Rant on soap box over.

Post by: King Orry on April 24, 2017, 17:29:32
As the thread's got a little hijacked I'll add.
I NEVER stop at Zebra crossings unless absolutely necessary, and sit looking in my mirrors these days when sat at any lights, mobile use when driving is endemic. I'm surprised more aren't killed.
On my ride home from work, I'd say 10-30% of drivers I filter past in slow traffic are on their phones.
It's the most dangerous hazard on the roads today.
Glad you're okay, keep Your wits about you folk.  :shock:

Josh's is an electric Oset 16 and he's a right nutter on it. It can even move me at a fair pace.

Treated myself to the new Vstrom 1000.
And I must say it's a big improvement from the L4 version.
The engine and gearbox is a lot smoother they have really sorted the mapping issues, the suspension is amazing, brakes too. The screen is better but I've still changed it to the givi airflow.
Just got to run her in abit then the wife and I is going to France at the end of July. Can't wait  :lala: :lala:

Very nice.
Interesting to hear from someone that owned a 14 that the fueling and gearbox are smoother, my 14 model isn't great on both.
Much as I'm tempted I think my next one will be the 650. But in a year or two if there's a yellow one sittin in a showroom somewhere with a good discount you never know! 
Good health to enjoy.

F*ckers.

Did you know the Navigator was the inspiration for the VStrom? Well sort of, Cagiva were looking for another engine for the Gran Canyon after they sold Ducati (the GC used a 900cc Duke motor) they looked at the Triumph triple but settled on the TL lump, Suzuki said they could have it as long as the 'bike wasn't sold in the States as they were planning there own sitty up 'bike.

Don't listen to the non believers Stokesy. Mine has been through a bit of a rough patch recently, all caused by me.

Wheel conversion to tubeless Honda CBR wheels, I found a thread on the tinterweb (in French) that said it was easy and straight forward. Utter nonsense, I've ended with 2 wheels on the 'bike, 1 rear that came as a pair that's the wrong size, a correct sized rear that's buckled and a front that's perfect but will never, ever fit.

Worth every single penny.

Then there's the oil leak saga. Changing the wheels meant changing tyre sizes, I went to 160/60 x17 on the rear. The Honda wheel came with a 43T back sprocket, acceleration was rapid if a little uncontrolled, motorways were "buzzy".So I fitted a 41T sprocket, a little better but still buzzy. Next on the shopping list was a 17T front sprocket, whilst I had the cover off I gave everything a damn fine cleaning, paying particular attention to the pushrod area. Took it for it's MOT and it's leaking like a Norton. A quick google (well TL Zone) tells me to swap the seal for an SV item and change the output shaft seal for good measure. Now the output shaft seal was bone dry not even misty, any normal Herbert would have let it be. Not me. I take it out and replace it with one of GKN's finest. Put it all back together, go for a blast up the A1 to Harewood and we have another leak.

The output shaft.

Strip it all down again and I fitted a Koyo seal. Lovely.

Now the latest demise, long story short, you've had enough I can tell....I changed the fuel filter and the air filter, no biggy, whilst I'm faffing I decided to check the TPS, it was out by a kippers eyelash. I took it for a ride and the thing tried to throw me off. Surging, flatspots you know the score. Check the resistance on the TPS, it's fine open closed it's goosed. A new one is on it's merry way.

From South Korea.

I do hope it doesn't come by rocket.

Post by: TLPower on September 15, 2017, 19:30:56
Stokesy

The usual suspects are well and truly beyond any education or engagement. Trust me I've tried.

They do have their uses though, I suggest a route (a hint of food helps) they follow me around said route and then kindly collect the bits as they drop off.

I've had mine for 12 years, I've never bought any Cagiva parts for it, they are made up from everyone elses best bits, the fun is finding out where from. I'll never sell it.

If I can be of any assistance post on here, or if you're shy PM me.

Retorts in order.

@user650. How conventional. A key. The Nail has evolved, by itself into a state of the art, high tech vehicle that the MODERN coffee bar generation would adore.

@Rusty. Yea but no but. Details, details. Sir Clive Sinclair and Victor Kiam  are willing to invest millions. Ducati have offered me even more to keep the technology involved quiet. So I will.

@Graham. The figures are in. Each gallon allows 43.75 miles of forward motion. Not bad eh? When I arrived home Bucket was going bonkers, (I normally turn the Nail off and freewheel to avoid this situation)the 1st thing Mrs Power said was "You stink of exhaust". So a safety feature, I can be found in the dark if I'm lost by smell.

My BSA outfit back in 1968. Started life as a 1954 B31 350. I put in a 500 crank, barrel and head and had 16 inch rims laced to the original hubs. An old race seat, a 5 gallon f/glass tank, Flat trials bars and a Watsonian single seat chair.  One of my favourite bikes, it took me all over the country for 3 years and only went when marriage forced me onto something with a roof.

The tank's, um, interesting. Was looking at a very similar solo last week on my round. Parked at the home of a Norton Dominator owner. The Beezer had the same tapered pushrod tower. It was warm, and smelt like a Proper Motorcycle. Oil and Solvol.

My 2004 VStrom 650 down at Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast last week. Run down from Norwich on a Sunday morning (earlyish to enjoy the mainly car free B roads) for a bacon butty, testing my new Road 5 Trail tyres (which went very well :))
I've owned it since April 2005 (it was just under a year old) when it had 1800 miles on and now it has about 44000. Had lots of adventures on it (including going to a European Katana rally on it when my 1100 Katana threw a hissy fit and refused to go!), plus other Euro and UK trips, work in the nice months and general fun at other times. Hoping to get off to the Bikers Classics in Spa on it later this month.

Thanks Martin. I did think about getting the latest 650 this year but realised it didn't really offer much more other than ABS for me, so I bought another 1100 Katana to keep the existing one company instead! I think if I did go for a new one I'd keep this now, as we have had so many adventures together.

I had wondered who has had their VStrom the longest on here, so I guess it looks like you unless there are any really long term 1000 owners with one.

A quick trip up the A9 to John O’Groats, then back via Fort William, Loch Ness & Loch Lomond.
Lucky to get superb weather, wifee an I did 1290 miles in four days.
The roads around the northern side of Loch Ness, and through Glencoe are truly fab.

Rode one of the early 950? KTM Adventurer things belonging to a pal, a very able piece of kit back then.
I bet that’ll hound a few sportsbike riders with ease, it’d be a great tool up those tight Alpine passes too.

Post by: mr_diver on August 13, 2018, 21:22:35
All the front brake does is proved enough braking force to make the forks dive wildly.
The rear brake is... nuthin... nuthin... nuthin... locked  :crazy:
The seat is surprisingly comfy as long as you don't sit on the hidden ridge under the foam.

Hiya mate, the Rm sounds my cup of tea,and the red sp looks lovely, mine, so I'm told was one of three prepared by Suzuki for the Scottish six days, but they decided to go with the pe instead, it has got some bits on it that are not standard that make me think the story might be true.

I hope this helps.

Another test with reduced file size from my PC. The original file was 6.5MB,this is 342 KB. naturally picture quality has been compromised a little. I had never seen a Moto Guzzi like this before.The owner told not many were built,it was tie up with Montesa(I think that's what he said).

Looks as if it’s the original file size Martin and nothing to do with security as the forum refusal to send note says.Glad that’s cleared that up.

Some pics of a tour round the North Coast 500 last May, me and a mate hired Glees and a pal came up from Manchester on his ZX6R (guess which of us were most comfy).

Loved it so much I bought my own Wee last month. Off to explore Skye and a bit more of the west coast this April.  :grin:

Just joined the group and thought I'd share a pic of my new shiny DL1000 sporting its 'JPS' colour scheme. Just looking at it makes me want to go and buy a pack of 20 and light up! Fortunately I gave up years ago! I've yet to see one on the road so hopefully I haven't made a mistake and let nostalgia get the better of me  :grin:

OK, the first two are from 2008 when my DL1000 was 8 days old and got taken down to Devon for an outward bound type stag do that was 1 mile down a green lane.
Next ones of the DL are from 2010 and a Europe trip around the Alps.
Next is the XT1200 I replaced the DL with at a gite near Le Mans we stay at for the MotoGP
Last is the soon to be traded in Burgman at the same gite. Hopefully by mid August I can post my new 1000 on here

I like Deauville's.

But the doctor gave me some pills and I'm getting better.  lol
