Move? How much cutting and welding was involved in that?

Uhmmm, Greywolf, you know I am out of my league if it can't be installed with pliars and a screwdriver!



Actually it wasn't too bad. The Wee2's right side is actually wider than the other Stroms. I had to bring out the rack 1 1/16" ( on both sides to keep it even ). The passenger handholds stick out much more also so I had to add 1 3/8" of tubing there. The bar that goes to the passenger footpeg is 3 1/4" longer. Then the tie bar across the back has 1 3/4" added to the angled part. Simple. The plate section that fastens to the top rack has the same spacing of the mounting bolts so that made that easy.

New bike

I bought a brand new "left over" 2012 DL650 Adventure, and I hope to be able to add some pics this weekend. I am waiting for the dealer to install the OEM matching top case, and the OEM hand guards.
I was surprised that I was told that they would not be seeing any 2013 Adventures (in Grey), until May. So, I took the discount, and grabbed the one 2012 he had left.

Nice looking graphics!

Used 2012 - Well Farkled

Found this used with only 2400 mi. on the clock. The 55L Givi top case is huge, but I'm keeping it for now while I look for a good luggage solution. I'm amazed how well these bikes ride. Smooth... stable... sweet!

Yes. They are great tires. Buzzy at slow speeds. Otherwise, really nice.

I did have the good fortune of trying one really nice accessory but I don't think I could afford it.....






Her Name is Kara and this was her last local photo shoot. She's off to New York where she just signed with a major modeling company..... Ah well...

can i sniff the seat??
