Well, it's official!

I fly to Dallas to pick up my new Glee tomorrow then ride it 1100 miles to my place in Phoenix. I sent him Givi V35, V47, AirFlow, and fork brace which he happily installed for me. Now it's ready to ride!

Congrats! Nice setup.

Are you planning to iron-butt it home or take some time to enjoy the ride? Better bring some warm clothes as I believe there's some cold wx moving into the area tonight.

Be safe!

Well, it's going to be raining and 45 for day-1 of 250 miles. Day-2 will be starting with temps from 30 and snow! to 48 and sunny for 410 miles. Day-3 will be starting at 27 to 76 and sunny. I hope the heated gear doesn't stop working!!!

I have the same bike. Love the Orange!! I ride in colder weather and the heated jacket and gloves is a blessing.

You did a smart thing with the fork brace. My bike was great without it, but better with. Crosswinds are no longer so annoying.....enjoy!

Congrats!!

I think it high time we organize a Phoenix Strom owner's meet-up. I think there's quite a few of us now. Whereabouts in Phoenix are you located? I'm over by Arrowhead.
