Yeah, here's a thumper! Great little bike, even hauls my big rear around at 60mph. I think it will go for sale next spring though for something a bit more dirt bikeish, or if I get really rich somehow a Strom.

1. Two cylinders does not qualify as "thumper" (I think?) :roll:

2. Nice carpet! :lol:

Yeah, the twin headpipes throw off alot of people...lol....only one muffler on it though. My brother's F650GS really confuses people cuz it does have twin mufflers, kinda pointless if you ask me... :?
