Sharing pics of mods & trips

Hi
My riding started with a new yellow 1970 Honda 50 Mini Trail. 48 years and 20 something bikes later I was looking for a bike to take camping and ride the all surface roads where we live. As well a bike to beat the high gas and insurance cost of bikes with X’s and RR in their names. Grabbed a 17 VV 200 as soon as my dealer in Canada got them in. FUNNEST motorcycle I have ever owned. Having fun chopping it up a little and adding some functional stuff. Will probably never stop tinkering with it.
Mods so far : - Remove rear mudguard
- Remount plate
- Shorten tail light
- Move front signals up and in
- Hand cut fairing using new Emgo Viper as blank
- Lockable / Removeable top box from Piaggio MP3 , colour matched

Looks great! It is a great bike. I wonder why Suzuki doesn't push the off-road aspect of the bike and make it a little more off-road worthy (under engine protection, front fender extension, etc).

There is a very nice under engine bash plate but shipped from China and really don't know if I should go for it or not. At 70 and too many surgeries my "extreme" days are over! You can see it on eBay.
Stay well

Hey I'm very new to motorcycles so please excuse my ignorance but I love the looks of your VV and was wondering if the windshield and headlight shroud (fairing?) Were handmade and fitted or a purchased product that I can get somewhere?
