That is tempting. First step is getting a title. I should be looking for a 250 2-stroke instead of a 500 if I was smart. Anyone have one? I'm trying to trade off an xr650r.

I traded my 2005 GSXR 600 for a 2007 V-Strom 650, even trade, on craigslist. No regrets. The Strom stock is probably a better 'adventure' bike than the 600 ever could have been.

We all had coyote's except for bronciii, he had a set of the wolfman saddlebags with a medium wolfman duffle bag.

The coyote worked great but I wish it was bigger on the bottom sections.

This one works on any dual sport. It's a national cycle deflector screen, I think it was $125 or $135 ish.

The crankcase breather is routed to the filtered side of the airbox. So there shouldn't be much vacuum. Should I re-install the oil separator? I have it in a box.

I basically stay in the second 'range' and shift with the rear. If there's a drastic terrain change I'll change the first cogs. 1-1 on my bike is insane, it's about the same speed as walking.
