I'm coming back!

. . . to the Stromtrooper clan, that is! It's been 4 long years since this bit of bad news. I've been riding my '08 Bandit and my 2103 FJR since then. I've been watching the Wee develop through the years and finally decided to rejoin the fun. I've always missed my '05 Wee, and am really looking forward to the 2013 that I'm picking up next Saturday! I'll be trading in my Bandit for her, and even though the Bandit has seen me through some tough times since I lost my Wee, I don't need 2 big bikes in the garage. So, I'll ride my FJR and my new Glee and just be happy all the way around.

Looking forward to meeting new folks and catching up with all the old timers I used to converse with way back when! Take care, everyone, and stay safe out there!

All the best,
Ed

Yes, welcome back, though it appears (from the date of the linked message) you had come and gone from this forum before I ever made an appearance.

Welcome back Whistler. The FJR/ Glee sounds like a great combo.
