New Strom owner check king in

Hey folks,
I've recently purchased a 2012 650 with about 4500 original miles.
I'm hoping to put a lot more on over the next couple years and I'm sure I'll come to you fine people for advice from time to time.

Hola, advice? Post your location...roughly and let us know where you are taking pictures.
Some of us have either been there or will want to find that place!
Occasionally the dealer that does my tires will insist on new stems.
