I have a new 06' Bonnie. I want to change the pipes to something louder than stock but NOT TOO LOUD for town or residential area. Any suggestions for pipes that look great and sound better than stock?
Uranium- I just got the V-strom, and have less than 200 miles on it! Can't tell you a lot yet. There's a couple of dedicated V-strom forums, but I the forum I liked was "sport-touring.net", and they had major server problems last week, supposed to be looking for new hosting. First impressions: the V-strom is the long-distance bike I was seeking to keep up with my wife's Trophy. It's probably going to replace my Bonnie as my commuter bike, it does 80mph in heavy Interstate traffic with great aplomb. It's basically a big honkin' standard, so the seating position isn't so different from the Bonnie, just everything is scaled up. Nice to have a bike where the brakes actually do something too. :-D I'd say it has about 80% of the Bonnie's manueverability, so the Bonnie will still get the nod for short/medium distance back road runs. Bonnie also does stop-and-go traffic better.On 2006-11-13 11:54, UraniumC wrote:
not to hijack the thread, but I noticed you have a V-Strom 1000, another bike I'm look at.
Care to comment on it, and is there a forum like this one for those bikes?
