Default Stromtrooper Sighted!

Are you here?
Turning eastbound onto Stark at 257th. Approx. 5pm Thursday. I think it was a 1K but traffic and all that luggage made it hard to see!
Nice looking ride!

Hmmm, a thread all to myself. Good thing I like my own company!

Saw a blue Wee today parked in MY spot in the Smart Park garage downtown Portland, corner of 3rd and Morrison.
Was it you?

I'll keep you company. Don't see stroms very often on the road. Odd, I know there are a lot of them out there.

I saw a bunch of them at Glolden Touch today too. And one of them was mine!

I'll join in on this one. I saw one Wednesday afternoon heading south on SW 185th at Baseline. Givi trunk I believe. Kind of saw it out of the corner of my eye so I can't picture all the details.

While we were Winging it, Saturday, between Mt. St Helen's and Hwy14, I must have seen 6-8 Stroms. One inparticular was eastbound on 14 around Washugal. Gray, nicely farkled, but no headlights. Another on southbound I-5 just before the Beaverton exit, looked like a fairly new bike. If you're reading, I gave you a thumbs up from the red Goldwing.
Btw, My Strom was at breakfast, too. Will post a couple of pics later.

Had my eye out all weekend for Stroms as I towed the family Springdale Trailer to Nehalem Bay for a nice Saturday through Tuesday camp out. Lots of bikes on the road including a nice sporty BMW with a rider in t-shirt and khaki shorts hanging it out between Nahalum and Garibaldi...unreal.
Finally spotted a Strom on I405 at about 2-2:30, bright green jacket.

I saw a DL1000, blue with a "Longriders" logo in white on the gas tank, and Washington plates, headed south on I-205 this morning about 10:30 AM. Big Givi hard luggage, looked like he was headed on a bit of a trip. I was impressed by the bike but I wasn't impressed by how close he was following cars in fairly heavy traffic. That didn't seem very bright to me.
