Woofers and Tweeters Posted October 17, 2022 Share Posted October 17, 2022 2 hours ago, 82 Cornwalls said: @Islander The only thing I don't like about his new bike is that it's not in my garage. :-) PS I don't ride anymore due to a slight vertigo/balance problem at times. Sorry to hear that. Last year I was lined out to buy a V Strom 1000, but started have major dizzy attacks, even laying down. Luckily that went away. 3 hours ago, Islander said: Yeah, I’d like to see the other side of the bike. There’s the mass of the engine,. The engine is a part of the frame Stock photo of the 1200s model. 3 hours ago, Islander said: I hope Woofers and Tweeters doesn’t mind our critique of the style of his new-to-him bike. It does look great, but more than that, it has the performance to make it stand out for more than looks. BTW, congrats on getting to run at Daytona. I got my expenses paid to go there three times in the Seventies, but it was as a mechanic, not a rider, unfortunately. What were you riding? The white plates mean Pro class, right? i raced Daytona 2 times. 2005 I started last and finished 4th. 2006 I won. It was Club racing. I raced WERA and AHRMA. 3 hours ago, 82 Cornwalls said: I didn't even notice the engine and had to look at the picture again after I read your post. Still feel like I'm searching for a hidden treasure. 😉 Former SV650 owner, do like a V twin sport bike. I raced BOT (Battle of the Twins) on an SV650, such a great bike. The engine on the VStrom is a tuned differently same enging as the SV. I like the thump of the twin. 2 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
