Awesome! The strom is truly a do it all bike. Since I got mine about a month ago, I have only driven the truck a few times (a couple days because of thunder/lightning storms, and then a serious grocery shopping list that had to be done.

Thanks for your service!

Congrats on the bike and the promotion. You better keep a close eye on your wife. There are lots of guys that would love a woman that purchases bikes.

We interrupt this marriage to bring you the riding season.
