Yep, and by store you mean everyone's house who didn't stock up on ammo, guns, and gasoline/diesel.

You will never make it, you picked the wrong ride. The guy in the simple to repair, no electronics, tough old Ford van loaded with ample weapons & maybe a buddy riding shotgun will run you down.
Then load the van up with a real haul & could even live in it for a while.
At some point he might unload a little 250 or smaller dirt bike ~ enduro ~ dual sport & go where a big fat ass GS or the like could never go.

Oh, how well can you ride & shoot with your left hand at the same time?

Better than you want to test.

What is this, a fire sale?

For anyone interested, the SkullStrom is on the block as well: $4850

http://anchorage.craigslist.org/mcy/2236201468.html

Selling a 2005 V-Strom 1000.

I bought this bike two years ago as my first formal foray into the adventure motorcycling scene. She has given me many exciting trips and adventures. She was getting tired at the end of last season and I decided to freshen her up a bit.

She has 35,419 miles on her.
Recently gone through mechanically.
Included work done:
- Ultrasonic cleaning of the throttle bodies.
- Ultrasonic cleaning of the fuel injectors.
- Replacement of cylinder heads on both cylinders.
- Replacement of both head gaskets.
- Inspected cam chains, tensioners, and chain guides.
- Valve seats, seals, and clearances checked when new heads were installed.
- New fuel injection system sensors to include airbox temp, airbox pressure, and water temp.
- Throttle body vacuum synch. (I have installed vacuum line extenders so synch's are easy to accomplish now)
- Throttle body primary and secondary butterfly's mechanical synch.
- Primary and secondary throttle position sensors were calibrated and aligned.
- Flushed and replaced coolant.
- Fresh oil change with new filter.
- New spark plugs.


The new heads that were installed were from a 2005 SV1000 that had 211 miles. These heads have the larger intake and exhaust valves in them. The bike runs beautifully, and does not need modification to run with these. If you wanted down the road, there's plenty of documentation on converting the fuel injection system over to SV1000 as well, giving the bike a ~ 20hp increase. As she sits now she'll be stone cold reliable. I checked the cylinder bores and they look absolutely fresh. This bike should have as many miles left in her as are currently on her. I built the engine to be reliable as I planned to keep her for a long time, but new ventures have come up and I am now the owner of a 2010 BMW R1200GS Adventure, so the 'Strom has to go.

Accessories installed on, or included with, the bike:
- All Balls steering head bearings.
- Elka 3 way adjustable rear suspension. This has externally adjustable rebound, compression, and preload settings.
- Sargent seat with underseat storage.
- Givi tubular pannier rack.
- Givi Monokey E41 side cases. (a little scratched an beat up, but still fully functional).
- Givi Topcase rack.
- Givi Monokey V46 Topcase.
- Givi TN528 Crashbars.
- Heated grips.
- Handlebar risers.
- Staintune stainless steel twin exhaust pipes. (Not installed, have the factory pipes installed currently)
- Heavy duty aluminum skid plate. (Not installed, took off for oil change, can install either chin spoiler or skid plate for you)
- Chin spoiler. (not installed, see above)
- Power Commander PCIII. (Not hooked up currently, but has custom map on it to work with the Staintunes)
- Madstad adjustable windshield mount.
- Large touring windscreen. (Not installed, I have the factory screen installed right now)
- Tom Tom Rider GPS hard wired into bike. (comes on with ignition)
- Centech auxiliary fuse block mounted under the seat. (The heated grips and GPS are powered off separate fuses here)
- Stebel Nautilus horn. (140dB, not installed)
- SpeedoHealer. (Not installed, needs DL1000 specific harness, needs installed due to larger rear sprocket)
- PIAA aux driving lights. (Wired on separate relay, triggered by flash to pass or high beams)
- Hand guards
- Heavier bar end weights to quell the V-Twin's vibration.
- ProTaper handlebar cross brace with pad.
- Flush mount front turn signals. (don't snap off if the bike falls over)
- Smoked LED taillight with integrated turn signals in addition to stock rear turn signals. (excellent visibility)
- Mirror extenders. (puts them ~ 15mm up, and ~30mm out for better rear visibility)
- +2 tooth rear sprocket for more low end torque and slow speed riding in 1st gear, puts it right in the meat of the powerband on the open road in 6th gear. (new front sprocket and chain were installed with the rear sprocket at ~ 30,000 miles)
- Custom Skull and Crossbones graphics.
- I also have a box of spares and extras that go with the bike, including a factory shop manual.

The bike is ready to roll right now, if my road wasn't packed snow I'd be out on it right now. Front tire is a Shinko E705 in good condition, rear tire is a Metzler Tourance in about 60% condition, and I have a spare front Shinko E705 as well. The appearance of this bike is on par with a 6 year old Adventure Touring bike that has been driven on a variety of surfaces for 35,000 miles. It has some scuffs and scratches, but there are no dents in the metals or rusting parts on it. The right Givi bag has a banged up upper lid, but is still fully functional.

Price is pretty firm, not looking to give a ton of wiggle room. Title clean and currently through lien @ Alaska USA FCU

I can take more pictures as requested as well.

Just thought I would post this on here and see if I got lucky

3 months ago I left for the trip of a lifetime to Chile via a BMW R1200gs. I made it as far as Guatemala where I promptly hit ice going through the pass to Guatemala City. I hit the median of the highway going about 50mph...launched into a couple flips...landed on the opposite side...just barely missing oncoming traffic. BUT luckily the only injury endured was a small scratch on the knee on some pretty bad stiffness for a week.

Anyways the point is, I am in need of some parts. I plan on continuing on from guatemala in a couple months.

Things needed:

Side panniers (I had the touratech's on there so those would be preferred since the mounting frame is still intact. Plus they saved my bikes ass in my opinion.)

Front mudguard (beak)

Front Headlight assembly

Front turn signal housings

Rear light cover

Right side crash bar (protects the head)

Possibly the right cylinder head cover (mechanic still checking that one out)

Thats it I think....I would have bought this all in Guatemala but

A. Im broke after paying to fix the motor and getting my ass back to AK
B. The BMW dealer in guatemala is a lil shady ...they were expensive and didnt have everything I needed.

If anybody has any of these things they could sell it would be really appreciated....or any info on another good place to look.

THANKS!!

Good that you're able to walk away, sounds like an awful crash.


I've never made it that far south, but I've always been under the impression that labor rates are significantly less expensive there. Find a machine/welding shop and have them fab up some new boxes and crashbars. The other stuff is a bit more problematic. Good Luck.

I had front and rear tires changed on 3 bikes in northern Chile for $5. Not $5 per tire... $5 for the six tires, on the bikes.

It was done at a muffler shop that did pretty much whatever needed done in add'n to welding up any shape muffler you wanted on the spot. Considering all the freight, etc. there's likely to be a smoking deal waiting right around the corner. The downside is that their culture allows for upward price adjustments after the work has begun. Watch for that. The whole "card laid is a card played" thing doesn't apply there in the same way.
