Funny how things are appreciating in different areas. That's the main reason people don't want sand pines in their yards down here (Florida). Well that, and their the first tree to come down with the hurricanes. Those needles make a mess.

Nice!

Love my various windscreen. There is a noticeable difference between up and down regarding wind protection.

Oh, right the bikes. I downright hate spokes. And have already used a plug kit on my Versys with the solid rims. That being said though, they look awesome! You really pulled it off. In fact, they look so good with those tires, it kinda makes me rethink my stance on spokes.

Use to live in SC. In Moncks Corner I had over 200 pine trees on 2.5 acres. ( Until Hurricane Hugo I lost 99 pine trees in that storm) The pine straw is the best stuff to use around plants looks good and keeps the grass and weeds out of the flower beds. Every spring i was having about $200.00 worth of pine straw shipped to cali .

Man, just think of the pine bark nuggets that would have made with a rented chipper..........I feel we've digressed a little off topic.

Yep, we all have preferences. However, for off road the spoke rims do provide an advantage of more flex and 'picking' your way around ruts, rocks, etc. And, you seldom see a dented rim on a wire wheel/hub. Thanks for the comment on the 'package'.

Search eBay with "Front CNC Axle Fork Crash Sliders Cap Wheel Protector Kawasaki motorcycle" or "Kawasaki Versys Fork Sliders" and you will see them, only $40 but came from Hong Kong, like 4 weeks for delivery.

To be honest no. And if I did not need to change the front brake lines due to the lifting the front fender, I would leave stock. The look of the SS lines is not worth the $ or hassle.

I went with 110/80-19, 150/70-17 Shinko 705's. It may prove I should have gone with a higher quality tire due to some of the reviews I have read, but so far they have been great. http://www.bikebandit.com/shinko-705-motorcycle-tire

I also considered the Metzler Tourance http://www.bikebandit.com/metzeler-t...otorcycle-tire

However, I really liked the Pirelli Dual Sport, but could not find the size I wanted.
