I've been around here since the beginning of May (same day I bought my 2011 wee) and have been taking full advantage of the collective insight and information available. Many thanks! I sold my 2008 KLR mid April, bought the strom (my first brand new bike :thumbup a couple weeks later. So far I have the Suzuki gel seat, Givi G21s, and a madstad with stock screen. All are great additions. I ordered some frame sliders today after an "almost" pulling into my driveway tonight after dark :yikes:. Luck and legstrength saved me a painful reminder to PAY ATTENTION. I'm thrilled with my bike, and look forward to stacking miles on it this summer. Anyone here in the Columbia Gorge?
