    HAHAHA wow nice jump!! Face meet tree......tree meet face.

    Looks like a fun even (jump not withstanding).

    I kind of would put the v storm more in a Road/FSR overland bike category. For 90% of the stuff hear its great plus way nicer to ride on the long hwy trips too.

    A friend a few years ago did an Iron butt race in the US on one. Had an extra 10 gallons of gas and a catheter to go to washroom with out stopping. Cant remember the details but it was an epic across US east to west in like 4 days. 1000+ miles per day.

    Looks awesome Cody!

    I just bought a bike myself, little different than yours and not street legal, but I can still ride the FSR's with everyone. 1988 XR250R

    those bikes are a blast!

    so i picked up some camping gear!!

    BIG Bill at MEC hehe...

    got a MEC Tarn 2 tent (2 person backpacking tent) set it up in my living room with ease. it got really good reviews and cant wait to check it out tonight.



    i also picked up a stove, some utensils, and a pot set. and check this out! i managed to fit my tent, the tent pad, my hiking pillow, stove, pots, TP, mug, and all my camera gear in ONE of my paniers... which means i still have an empty one for beer and food



    got my tripod all packed in there to, so ill get some pictures of her off road and maybe some of myself to :P
