So I bought my Vee new in August of 2009, lately I had been thinking of selling it to purchase a GS1150 I have been lusting for. So I went out the other morning to clean the bike all up and take pictures for the ads. While I was polishing her up a bit I was looking at all the memories that I had scratched and wore into the old girl over the last 3 seasons and 30,000+miles. I reluctantly took the pics and posted the ads...once I had posted the ads I started to have second thoughts. After 2 days I pulled the ads and decided I am not done making memories on this bike..

I've disappointed a few buyers with my V-Strom for sale ads in the past. lol

Once I sold it for money towards a down payment for a new place. My wife bought it back a few months later tired of listening to me talk about how much i missed it.

How does that driver back rest work for riding two up? Does the passenger have issues with it at all? I'm imagining the passenger's legs rubbing on it and it not being comfortable. I like the idea though because it would keep the passenger from sliding into me as I ride, not to mention having a back rest would be nice.

You still have a few great memories (and Miles) to go my friend. I just registered Mine again today. 85,500-ish Miles on mine


Admittedly, not all of them are mine, but a whole mess of 'em are!

Probably gonna put another 6,000 on it at the end of June. You are welcome to tag along

My new 2012 V-Strom 650

Well, here's my new beast, 2012 V-Strom 650 ABS Adventure.
Actually I made one out of a standard V-Strom. Added my own
hand picked accessories:

Givi skid plate
Givi Engine guards
Givi Trekker hard bags
Suzuki hand guards
Bike Master heated grips
Suzuki Low seat
Suzuki center stand

I have a 46 liter Trekker ordered that I'll use as the
left side bag, moving the Trekker 33 up to top case.

So far I really love this bike!!!

Mama is not a big fan of the driver's backrest when she rides with me. You nailed it that the rest effects her leg comfort. For me, riding solo, which is pretty much the norm the backrest is AWESOME!!

Not so much when I go off the slab, as I REALLY like to take the bike off slab, but all I have to do is unscrew a couple nuts and i can take the rest off and throw it in my top box. No biggies and totally worth the money!
