A few weeks ago i had a big suzuki crate going to Bloomington powerSports. I finally found the numbers and it was a DL650 vstrom. I was kind of excited to see it. So i got there and Rayce said it was a blue one which is my favorite color on the stroms. So we opened the crate and found out some moron that works on our dock ran forks through the crate and scratched the forks, brake caliper, pipe, starter and a few other little things which sucked because thats my favorite road bike especially in blue. So i had to call in work and go through the claims department and file a claim. Then to top it off when i left his telephone line caught the rear edge of my trailer and pulled it out of the building and broke it in half. Rayce is a good guy but im i wasnt on his friends list that day.

Awesome! Looks like you could crush his bike with your S10 like Bigfoot!

As a matter of fact that kind of looks like like Tims truck being crushed in this picture

Yes it is true I did have to bail Woodsrat out one day when his beater truck was out o gas with some weird fueling system that would work with a C130 refueling him.....and Nick is right the truck in the picture being crushed is more road worthy that Tim's.

i have spent some time in that truck, it rides worse than my one ton diesel and gets worse fuel mileage too. i will never understand the dipstick fuel gauge system he has in place. the drivers side bed rail is ready to fall off... so don't lean on it!

but.... it has a small block chev, 305 with a 700r4 od trans. my guess is that ol beater will still be roamin the earth longer than any you chumps could imagine.

kinda like a klr.... no respect.


VIVA LE WOODSRAT!!

I agree with Tpar, think this truck will keep going. Might need some rust cut out and replaced but why not?
