Suzuki V-Strom 650 Project Bike

This looks like a working motorcycle, like a quarter horse is a working horse! It sits right, it’s practical and the author is relaxed and comfortable on it.

My 2008 model, though one of the most practical and ergonomically pleasing bikes I have ever owned, seemed to be begging for modification. The chance of my ever riding it off-road is slim to none, so I set about improving it for medium-... Read more »

Mid-size bikes make a lot of sense. Not only because they tend to be less expensive and lighter, but also because they have become so competent. Considering competence, this trio of liquid-cooled, 650cc-class twins each has a 6-speed transmission, chain final drive and some gravel-road pretensions (though... Read more »
