Great ride. You can try tire studs to expand your riding season

Hahahahaha Funny....I was thinking the same thing.....how in the heck did he get it on the balcony?

And I thought motorcycles in Australia were expensive.....sheesh!!

Nice bike though...as all Stroms are....I too loved the Stroms when they first were introduced but they were outside the power restrictions of a learner rider over here but I did get one eventually.....I looked at many bikes of all sizes and styles and I just kept comming back to the DL650 theres something that's gotta be said about that

If you want to ride your strom all year round...bring her downhere in OZ ...mine gets used 12 months of the year.

Cheers

I could ofcourse tell you how i got the bike on my balcony, or if it actually IS on a balcony...But i think i`ll just let it hang there

I`de love to take a month or two in australia, riding around proper adventure style!! But that would not go down well with the missus. I did get a whole day of biking this summer when we where on holliday on Crete, that was the best damn ride of my life!

Thats me to the left with my rented wee and my mate with his rented Transalp. This was actually the first time i ever drove a wee and i was well impressed with it. Comfortable, powerful and decently nimble. Even after 6 hours of driving i didnt feel worn or beaten.

5 more months until the season starts......

Default Wee

Nice Wee, Had one just like it on ebay last year but lost it in the last 30 sec.
I found an 09 Wee 100mi from my house with 3990 miles and the guy delivered it to my door. She a beauty. I know how you feel.

Default Wee goodies

It has been fun finding components for my 09 Wee that make the ride right for me. So far I've installed a Givi windscreen, Sargent seat, Murph's C stand and Adventure Tech mirror extenders.

A Yann skid plate soon. Still searching for the best luggage combo for the least amount of $$$. My go with SW Motech rack system and some alum pannier from Potvin Cycleworks, West Bend, WI. Still searching. What else do you do when there's a foot of snow and -13 outside. Any other ideas are welcome??
