After years of thoroughly testing the Suzuki DL650 over some of the toughest terrain the US has to offer, it was chosen as the right bike for this journey.

My Strom has been all over North America traversing rough mountain passes in Colorado, deep sand in Southern New Jersey, and 1200+ mile days earning Iron Butt certifications.

The following modifications have been made to suit my riding style and travel needs:
