WV Strommers are few & far between

Just for the record, I for one am very happy that there are very few bikes like mine locally, I'll bet there are only three (mine included) within a 250 mi. radius. Every dork I went to school with has bought a Harley ( and they are still dorks) & every youngster owns a Ninja. I love it when a passer by gives me that "What the heck is that" kinda look. It's sorta like being the only kid on the block with that hard to get toy. I hear there is trouble getting Stroms in the States...Well for now , thats just fine with me.

Yeah, same here. I live in Wellsburg WV and I thought I had the only Strom around my area until today. I saw and waved to somebody in Follansbee riding two up on a Black one today.

I like riding the wee because no one else has one, at least not many here in W.Va. I do a lot of riding around W.Va. and most of what you see are cruisers. Always looking for another Strom but have only seen two in the last year around these parts..

So many roads so little time!

Checkin' in! Hiya Ron. Seems the numbers are coming up a bit. My buddy in Barboursville has a Wee and another friend in Redhouse just got one. The Strom Army is getting bigger.

btw, I live in Scott Depot.

Hey guys. What we need is a meet and greet over coffee and pie somewhere. I'm in Hurricane W.Va., silver/blue '06. I know the guys over on ADV have been talking about a meet and greet but nothing for sure yet.

I wouldn't be quick to say that. I'm in your neck of the woods just about every weekend for the past few even though I'm an hour away, I come out there pretty regular to play. Was actually just out in Berkley Springs and beyond there this past weekend playing on 901 and rt.9, shot into pa.near mc connelsburg too.
Last Monday my wife an I were out on rt.9, mountain road and some other roads out in that area. If you're up for meeting up sometime, let me know.

I'm originally from Beckley, and lived for a long time in Madison, although I've been out of state since college, most recently in northern va.

There's no place I'd rather ride than good ole WV though. US 219 is my favorite riding road of all time.

I've made my way up to Harpers Ferry a few times, there are some nice rides up there!
