I've had my Strom for about 18 months now after trading in a Bandit on it. More than happy with the bike as it is extremely well suited to Aussie conditions. Great to tour on as well as being able to lift its skirts and run when you want it to. I've not made any mods to the bike, only a bagster tank cover and bag and got my local mechanic to put it on the dyno and get everything running just right. Got an extra 5hp just by getting the air/fuel mixture right.
