CaseyB,

Glad you came out of that fall OK…I was the one that stopped on the 990. Did a quick 100 mile loop in the area after I left you. Did you make it to the Snake Bite? Great burgers!

Yes, you're right, I know this bike is not meant to be held simply to 30 miles rides. I just couldn't pass up the deal! In reality, I may try to trade/sell to get a 2012+ Wee Strom. We'll see.
