I'm in Omaha...

I have a Black 650 with swiss army decals. I know of 3 others, one Yellow 650 (Frank- just back from Alaska), a Black 1k (never met the guy, but he's on ADVrider) and a newer blue/grey (you know...that color) with Zebra stripes that look black in the day and reflect white at night. There is also a black 1k in Lincoln (Vodie- also just back from Alaska).

I have also seen several others around.

There are a couple local breakfasts on the First and Second Saturdays of every month.

1st Sat is at the
Summer Kitchen Cafe (now located near Cabelas near 126th & I80)
at 8am.

2nd Sat is in
Waverly, NE (East side of Lincoln)
at the Trackside (behind McDonalds in the strip mall)
at 8am.

For more info, check the Central forum over at ADVrider. Lots of great folks that like every kind of bike. Once in a while there will be a cruiser there....mostly we are a dual sport and sport touring crowd.

-5th

Been wee stromin' long as YOU!

I have a 06 light blue/silver wee. I'm in Council Bluffs. You'll see me almost every morning around 6:30 heading to west Omaha, & heading home east in the afternoon. I said hi once to a guy on a black 1k with full luggage at Qdoba on 72nd & Pacific, and I've seen the red one around also, so I know there are more around. I actually saw 3 parked on main street up in Missouri Valley, IA in the Spring.

I am in Underwood, IA

I normally don't see many strom's around Omaha, nice to know there are a few others in the area. I will have to check out the local breakfasts on the first and second Saturday's in Omaha.

I commute to Bellevue for work daily. I drive the 650k8 Flat Black with a Givi top box on it. Maybe I will see you around sometime.

Stroms still seem to be pretty rare around here.
I have seen a couple in the parking lot out at Dillon's from time to time.
I have had mine since June of '06
