This page has been updated on 16th April 2012. I have a newer version of the Vstrom, a black 09 model with ABS, but that is in Australia. I had sold the blue 2006 version as it had been dusted.
My bike I am using in the America’s is a 2007 model Suzuki DL650 Vstrom with quite a few modifications to make touring, both on and off road, more enjoyable and safer for me.
These modifications I took with me and bolted on in Salt Lake City, prior to starting my trip, thanks to Ken and Beverly who hosted me for the two weeks needed to ready the bike
The bike in Panama, on the deck of a 62ft yacht, the Golden Eagle with Aussie skipper Peter(Bruce) heading to Colombia, South America
This is the new Black ABS bike in Sarina at Shaynes place
And this is in front of The Barking Spider, Medellin, Colombia, with Hellen
A while back I attended the Inaugural Vstrom gathering at Cobar, in 2007 and this is the prize I won for the most farkled VStrom. FARKLE = a combination of Function and Sparkle, those things added to a motorbike that improves their function or looks.
