How much do you weigh?

Along with age and height, how about weight? I'm trying to find out if average stromtroopers are really in their 40s, over 6ft tall and 250-300lbs as some of the posts here seem to indicate. I know I feel like a midget at rallies but am bigger than most people around me otherwise.

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

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

Why does America still use the dam imperial system? These numbers make no sense

The politicians were worried the public would vote them out of office if a change was made.

I feel your pain. Imperial units suck. But the constant converting keeps my mind young!

haha lmao - yeah it definitely seems there are some big people riding stroms. What's pretty funny is I've seen a lot of really tall people riding stroms and I've also had a lot of tall people approach me and ask me about "tall people" and how the strom fits me (I'm 6'4" and approx 225 lbs). When I say tall... I mean really tall... At least 6' 6"

I've seen 4+ people now in the 6'6" (or greater) range who ride stroms.
