Can I change my answer?

I answered "Over 290 lb". I need to change it to "Over 170 lb to 190 lb".





I just dropped under 190 today! I had Gastric bypass surgery right after the 2009 North American V-Strom Gathering. My highest wight was 313, I am targeting 180 as my goal. I could not even come close to wearing that Twisted Throttle t-shirt when I picked it up at the gathering. Now it is one of my favorite shirts!

Wow, do I feel better! :hurray::hurray::hurray:

Way to go Denver6 :thumbup:

When I parked my Strom last fall I weighed 224lbs. Today I'm 193lbs. The bike should be killer fast now with 30 odd pounds less to lug around when I put it back on the road this spring.

At the start on January, I was 260lbs. I am now just a hair over 230. My goal is 190, my fighting weight:var_20:, as my wife calls it. I agree, hauling around 70 less pounds should make me alot faster ( if you took 70lbs off your bike it should be :mod2_scooter:WAYfaster!).
It was entierly a health decision. While my blood pressure has always been good, my cholesterol was up a bit, and heart disease and diabetes run on both sides of my family. Being overweight is probably the stupidest risk to my health i could take.I'm hoping by swimsuit season. Although i'll still be carrying about 70lbs more than my kid, so i may not be able to catch him.
Dieting sucks,:var_38: but it's better than dying!

Well I guess I'm one of those guys that piss you off. I eat most of the same stuff but somehow can't manage to pass the 150 mark!! :confused:

Welcome to the gang, nice to see another coon-ass in the mix.

I ain't got time to be upset! Takes too much energy. Besides, we all can't be big cause who would get in them tight spaces LOL! If ever you want to meet up for a ride let me know. There aren't many Stroms visible here in Houma.

Well, it's nice to know I'm useful for something!! :hurray:

There aren't too many Strom's around NOLA either, in the year and a half I've had mine I've seen 2 and wasn't able to talk to either one of them. A few months before I bought mine I saw my first one in the area, never saw it again though, but.....when I saw it on the road he was riding with a couple of guys on HDs, I bought this on used at the HD dealer in Metairie, same color, sooooo maybe I do see it...everyday I'm home...in my driveway!!

I don't make it out to Houma very much but I do, one day, plan to take a ride
up through Kramer, Thibodaux, Pierre Part up to I-10 and back home down river road from Baton Rouge. All paved roads. Got any good roads to ride around you?

Looks like we are a bunch of fat-a$$es - me included :green_lol:

But seriously, my size was one of the reasons I bought this bike. It fits me.
