Was given a 2005 Wee-Strom with 3300 miles on the clock. It had been living under a tarp outside (thankfully in SoCal) for over 3 yrs, had been gently lowsided at low speed once and needed lots of love. I do my own work and changed all fluids, spark plugs (ok, ok, I don't know why...), airfilter, new battery, tires and chain and it fired up at the first touch of the starter. The goal was to clean it up, make it run well and sell it. Then I rode it..... The bike that preceded this was a 2006 620 Ducati Multistrada. I like the way this bike handles better than the Duc, am more comfortable on it and will be damned if I'm going to sell it. First time to the Rock Store (a famous & fun SoCal motorcycle spot) guys were coming out of the woodwork telling me they had one or had had one or rode to Alaska on one and on and on. It's like a freaking cult! I've had that 'M' designation on my drivers license for over 50yrs and owned more bikes than I can remember. This bike that I thought was just another boring UJM has become a favorite. How did I not know about this bike and the avid followers who own them? Like I said is this a cult and I never knew the secret hand shake?
