Re: For Sale - White Vstrom 650 2012 Glee

I may be a bit biased, but I'm really happy with my "Glee" .... a great all-rounder, and, always a consideration, very good on fuel. (And ABR seems to like the 650 'Strom, too!).

All fine and dandy ... apart from the problems of storing, transporting and dispensing a highly explosive gas under g...
