V Twin Club

Post by XF650 » Tue Mar 31, 2015 9:10 am

As much as I love singles, a good V twin is virtually impossible to beat, IMHO, so how about a V twin thread to compliment the Singles thread?

Whether it's American, Jap, Italian or whatever, show us your V twin!

These are mine presently:

Regard this as my Jap Guzzi ha! (thumbs)

Had three previous 860/900s, always a love/hate relationship - will this 4th one be my last? :unsure:

As she is now with addition of rear rack and top box. Still got the soft panniers and tank bag to use for 'touring' but she is mostly for short local ride-outs in England.

New (to me) V Strom 650DL with luggage set up for the touring it. Also has gear on pillion seat e.g. tent & chair normally.

Love them both and not in any hurry to change. Big enough and enough umph for me :lol:

Not such a great touring bike - hence my other post in the "singles" section. I'm thinking of combining two bikes for an orange 950 B)

Here's mine in the Alps with some random kid who just stopped and stared at it after being corrupted by the V twin power. He'd stopped and when his grandparents tried to drag him on he screamed and didn't want to move so we perched him on it and he was happy (thumbs)
