Default Re: New Suzuki V-Strom coming to America

lol... She'll be in a book I'm doing for Whitehorse Press. I'll post here when it comes out in about a year. I'll be working more with her and hope to have some REAL nice shots soon.



THANKS!

Probably since it's being marked as an "enduro tourer", they put it high to allow for riding through small creeks and other situations where you want the exhaust to be up and away from the ground - like riding between two big rocks or something.



Although you still have a problem with bashing the big, unprotectd disc brakes, but I don't think people would compensate smaller disc's in return for better clearance.

Do you have the URL for this TL1000s owners group website ? I didn't know that there was such a thing strictly for the TLS. Unless you're talking about sport-twin.com or tl1000.com which address many twins, as a whole, and the latter that caters to the R model more than the S. Personally, I've had 2 TLS's. A 98' that a deer killed (long story) and a 2K that I still have. Apart from it oiling the airbox (easily fixed) I haven't had any problems.

Default Dual-sport aesthetics

> I just think that it could have been executed a bit better.



Agreed. The CapoNord, the Pegaso, and especially the Cagiva Gran Canyon, are all much more attractive than the V-Strom within the "shiny dual-sport" market. But now there is now the Multistrada, so the V-Strom is certainly not the ugliest of the genre.

Did you order Silver or Blue? My dealer said almost everyone has ordered Silver so far.

opps thought those were rearsets. I didn't see the control pegs (low and forward) until I blew up the image (a lot) Those should put the passengers knees in the riders kidneys. It better have a smooth suspension.

Default Poor Voxan

If I have my story straight, it seems the only reason Voxan is in bankruptcy is because they can't fufill all their back orders. They don't have enough capital to provide all the bikes people have ordered and couldn't come up with another investor quickly enough. Rumor is they're in a chapter 11 type deal and won't go under, but the French courts are strange to us in the USA, so don't quote me.



Did I read that Voxan story here? Or was it in the Chicago Tribune? I can't remember; hope I helped.

Hmm... '98 Legend TT... no; haven't got the money, even if it sold for less than a Nighthawk 750, I can't even afford a Nighthawk 250! But I can dream, can't I?
