Bought an 04 650 DL gave it to my wife and bought the 05 1000 DL for myself. I love both bikes. But I still can't stop thinking about the new BMW
1200GS ADVENTURE. I don't know what to do anymore. Keep my 1000 or
exchange it for the BMW?

Hi ya'll,

I have the big one and love it! It gets a lot of both worlds here in Montana, dirt and street. I chose the 1000 as my Mrs and I do trips two up, so we like the power under the load of gear and all.
It has been terrific so far!!

Glad to see all these posts.

TC

I bought the big daddy, and I love it. Put a set of GIVI bags on it, and it is my everything bike. It is good for anything from a short putt to the grocery store to a week on the road. We ride it two up a lot of the time, and that is why we got the 1000.

I have the E360s, with a E460 trunk. I have the Givi brackets, and I like them fine.

Got both!!

Got both, plus a few others.




I could have bought any bike I wanted, I rode Criscokids 1000, and you talk about griiiinnn factor. Went to the dealer and ordered his and hers. Now we have a full stable

Great bikes both of them!!

You can also fill it about half full with ice, and put almost a case of beer in it, for those byob functions. I like the E360s, because they just come off with a push of a button, and they can be carried just like a suitcase.

I sure like my 1k but night riding in the rolling twisties is scary.
Between the faring mounted headlights and the somewhat high pattern of the lens the lack of light makes me feel like Im turning into a dark hole.

Im getting a set of PIAAs before the next long trip. And I'm angling them so I can see better through turns.

Double thanks for the pics. I was thinking if I buy a wee, I'l have to pony up for a set of h-b junior bags as I hadn't really ween a set of Givis I thought looked as good. That setup looks very nice. If you don't mind, how much was that setup?

Seems like V-Stroms are becomming respectable. I have s 2004 1000. Bought the bike new and am very pleased with it. In fact, I've been shopping and have tried several bikes, but have found nothing so versatile and fun.
Damn, I'm going to have to learn how to post pics.

I use the GIVI e-21's on mine. Bike is a daily rider, and I never have to be too creative with the bungees. The 21's are deceptively large, keep the bike relatively narrow, and the top opening feature is really nice. Cheaper, too.
