My poor VStrom has been sitting in the garage for the past 4 months, without a mile of riding. There was a weird sound coming from the engine area and I knew I had to fix it before I could ride the bike. I simply haven't had the time and the sound was, quiet honestly a mystery. I couldn't locate it. This morning, between business calls, Tyler and I tried to figure it out. After five minutes of investigation, it turned out to be a spacer washer that was loose and creating a terrible racket at about 5,500 rpm's.
The bikes ran great and it was wonderful to ride with Tyler. It created a desire in us to make a trip.
