Rode again yesterday. First day I"ve ridden an weeks when it wasn't cold. It wasn't warm but it was 'not cold'. Been the longest wettest winter I can remember. Rode it all, but not happy for much.

My new ride.

So here is mine. I just picked this up today by chance. Went for a ride this morning on my FZ1 and came home with this 2004 DL1000. It is a used bike with 1400kms on the odo. Came with crash bars and Shad luggage system with brake lights and back rest for passenger. Sorry, no trip pics yet.

Congrats Fury. Since this is advrider, I know you'll want to get rid of the plastic skid plate. I came up with a way to use the SW Motech skid plate with Givi bars that works great. Tested it last weekend with no problems.

I missed this invite, sorry. I actually went for my first ride this morning. 6:30 to Squamish for breakfast with my usual group. Next time perhaps, Thanx.

I have to say I am very impressed with the performance and comfort after coming off an FZ1. The big DL reminds me of a GS1150 I rode once... only more power, lower seat, and cheaper. Hehehe. I am gonna have alot of fun touring with the Strom.

Nice skid plate, but are those 2 clips strong enuff to do the job? A hard impact would push the plate into the pipe.

I thought the same thing at first. As a matter of fact, the clamps were originally only going to be temporary until my machinist friend could mill up a custom bracket. I installed them and was surprised at how sturdy they are.

Two things help out. The rubber on the clamps will not allow them to slide at all. The clamps are really torqued down on the bars (1" clamp diameter from the fastener section @ Lowe's). In addition, the ears on the clamps are short enough that there could be no travel into the pipe on a bend.

However, I did have to bend the tang of the plate forward a little to mount. The aluminum does bend pretty easily so a real hard hit could bend the tang back without moving the clamps. It's taken a couple of pretty could bumps and came out well so far.

That looks pretty good. Leaves the oil cooler a little vulnerable, though.

I looked into this wondering if the oil cooler is really a problem. AFAIK, there has not been one report of an oil cooler failure on a Strom w or w/o a bash plate. Seems like a phantom concern.
