Hello, I've been lurking the forum for several months and finally signed up. I bought a white 2011 WeeStrom just last month after reading hundreds of threads on this forum. I hadn't rode in over 20 years but needed to find something fun. My only bike before was a Hodaka 125 which I rode in the strip mines of Kentucky. I have rode friends bike since but hadn't been a real rider forever. I chose the Strom mainly for it's ergonomics and reliability as voiced on this forum. I just feel better balance with my feet under me. Well I hope to learn even more now that I can search the forum and look forward to getting some miles under my belt. I'm currently a fair weather rider which means the Strom has been in the garage a lot lately but all things will come in time.
