Most folks that buy stroms are not squids, ergo, no.
Next?

A biker without full-face protection should only ride as fast as the slowest hornet.

The height and long wheelbase do not lend themselves to such activities.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

must... not... hijack thread....
uggg, cant help myself...sorry!
I keep hearing and seeing this term 'squid'. Would someone please define it for me?

By the way, I second the point that IMHO the basic characteristics of the strom might make it unattractive for stunting.

Most people who own Stroms are old enough to realise that they don't bounce as well as they used to.

This bike would be as worthless as a cruiser for the stunter crowd. Their bikes of choice are usually 600cc sportsbikes; the Ninja 636 being one of the more popular ones.

Webster stunt; dangerous action done to attract attention. No thanks.

Old enough to know better young enough to say WTF!!

Most people wouldn't call it stunting but I have been known to shift into 4th gear riding on one wheel. Forget about nose wheelies (ask me how I know).
