Hey my name's Rick from the Lower Mainland...Chilliwack, BC.

Started off with dirt bikes when I was a kid, switched to streetbikes for a few years when I was old enough, then moved to Northern Ontario where it was sleds and atvs. Now that I'm in my 40s I've come full circle back to dirt bikes (Husqvarna TC450) and most recently a '87 Honda Transalp.

Both lots of fun but wanted something more comfortable for longer trips and now have a '05 650 Strom, just took it for it's first ride tonight and it just feels right.

Bike has 99,000 kms on it and runs well. The PO only had to adjust the exhaust valves once and his maintenance records are very thorough. PO went out and bought a 2011 Wee to replace this one with. This was the PO's daily driver and was driven year round as a commuter with very little dirt use, it's in very good shape, a credit to the PO :thumbup:

With 100,000 kms on a 650 what are the usual things I should be keeping an eye out for as far as preventative maintenance?

Hope to put another 100,000 kms on it,
Rick
