    Stromtroopers - New member introductions
    :hurray:I bought a 2005 Wee Strom two days ago and couldn't be happier. I paid 3500 for a 28,000 mile bike with some nice basic upgrades (Madstad, Givi Monokey, handlebar risers, skidplate/crashbars) and the best part was that the former owner was a meticulous mechanic. Besides being a helluva...
