Greetings from Milton, ON
After a 34 year hiatus from riding motorcycles (Kawasaki 100 cc enduro bike) I've re-entered the sport and purchased a super-clean 2009 wee-strom. Took a 3 day riding course to get re-oriented and have put over 1,000 kms on the bike over the past couple of weeks and absolutely love it!
I installed SW Motech crash bars and bash plate because I'm hoping to do some touring offroad in due course, but not until I've gotten used to the not-so-wee strom - this pig is heavy!
I've already 'laid the bike down' in the driveway when I dismounted and discovered that the kickstand wasn't fully extended - luckily those crash bars saved the fairing! (....I'll be practicing using my new tire puncture kit on the tires of any neighbors who witnessed and scoffed at that inglorious drop!)
