    General V-Strom Discussion
    At long last I can now call myself an official Stromtrooper. I picked up a very nice 2012 Wee Adventure model in Alabama on Saturday and rode it back almost 900 miles to Austin, TX. I have to say, the bike is downright amazing, especially coming from my 1982 Kawasaki KZ550 LTD. It's almost...

    About 2 Weeks ago, I was out for a relaxing ride in the area, and on the way home, I was turning left from a stop. I am a new rider, and still learning the in's and out's of riding, and the wee is my first bike. I'm 6'4" and pushing 270lbs so the bike fits me pretty good. The Honda Rebels in...
