Hi all, I've had a great time researching and reading all your posts. About 2 weeks ago I found a 'near new' second hand 2007 Wee with shy under 11,000kms on the clock, with a few farkles fitted, for sale and........... lashed out and bought it!

It's been about 11 years since I last owned a beast (back then it was a BMW K100RT) or ridden a bike of that size. I thought it was about time I ventured back to bike territory.

I have managed to do a few hundred k's so far just around the Central Coast, and I love it:thumbup:. I'm looking forward to doing a bit of touring later this year with my brother who lives in Canberra, and perhaps tagging along on a few rides with other like minded Troopers when work commitments allow.

Welcome to the nut house Pete, there are a few inmates in your area.
There is a ride to Dubbo this weekend (25/26), if you cant make the ride maybe come for brekky at McGraths Hill.
Cheers

Welcome

Hi Pete,

Welcome to the site, hope to catch up for a ride. As V-chops has mentioned feel free to join us for the ride down on Saturday morning if you can't make the whole Dubbo trip.

G'day Pete,

Welcome to the "madness" that is the Strom.

As the others have said, meet us at McGrath's Hill [near Windsor] for the ride to Dubbo for an overnight stop or just for brekky if you can't do the full run.

Thanks one and all for the warm welcome. Unfortunately this weekend to Dubbo is out for me due to other commitments, but I am looking forward to catching up on a future ride.

Cheers and looking forward to meeting up soon.:mrgreen:

How Much ?

Hi R1blade75,

I payed $6500 for the bike, it had crash bars, sump guard, Hepco & Becker mounting brackets for rear luggage & 2 soft bags.

Comparing to what was available around the time on Bikesales.com.au this model seemed to be asking around this mark.:thumbup:

Welcome aboard

My '07 650 had 9k km when I bought it and now has close to 40k...and it has been all great fun and I have met some great people. Enjoy yours!

Thinking out aloud here.. there seems to be a few of you Newcatle /C Coast guys, wouldn't it be good to pick a weekend in say November (great weather and good lead time) and we Gold Coasters could meet up half way at Coffs at the camp ground of the last gathering, it was a great place.

It would be good to make a full day of it to get there, camp out (cabins available also) and hike it back on Sunday. Or am I dreamin' again...VStroms do that to you.

Lets work on it

I am meeting some Gold Coasters for coffee this Saturday (27th) at 9am at Canungra (if anyone else nearby is reading please join us) and I will see if we can nominate a date and run it past this thread.

The run to Coffs offers plenty of alternatives across the ranges and we know the caravan park / pub are great. A Xmas run to Broken Hill could still be another ride for you guys.

Cheers - Trevor
