I bought this about a month ago and sold my Aprilia Pegaso. I was sad to see it go, but I needed something a little bigger, stronger, and more reliable. I travel to three area nuclear plants in the spring and fall for their outages and my truck just wont make it. So far this thing has been great. It is a 2008 Suzuki V-Strom 1000, or DL1000. it is the quickest bike I have ever owned and super easy to maneuver through traffic. I have a few plans for it this summer including a high fender mount, rear rack (that will incorporate a bicycle rack), Givi crash bars, and a graphics kit for the front ferrings. I will post more pics as the work gets done.
