Thanks for the info guys. I am seriously thinking about buying my luggage in advance of getting the bike later this year just in case a scarcity does develop.

I just picked up a Strada last week, VIN 5110. With just 150 miles so far, I've had it stumble several times leaving from a stop sign. I know that it's had the latest MOSS update from Bill's in Salem. I'm going to wait until I've got more miles on it before I discuss it with Bill.

Stumble

Next time you start it....let it idle for 10 minutes or so without touching the throttle. It may help some. After my bike was Mossed the first time it was much better...but after a few hundred miles the stumble would rear its head again....never as bad as before the Moss treatment ....but long idle times every once in awhile seem to keep it manageable. The harder I run my Strada the better it seems to run.

I would not sweat it. It is not a big deal.

Still only have about five hundred miles on the Strada and trying to limit the RPMs. Wondering if the bike will run a bit better when the whole RPM range is used on a regular basis. I'd say I get a stumple on occasion, but if adapt riding style it's now odd to have a stall. Just give it a little rev prior to letting the clutch out.

Rob, I started using the entire RPM range after the first 50-100 miles. No stumbles, runs like a cat with its tail on fire.

Worst case scenario, you might have a good excuse to buy the DynoJet PC5.

I totally thought this engine was perfect, but after seeing the numbers on the PC5, I'm seriously considering it.

Getting the same results here. Mine's got 130 miles now and quit stumbling somewhere in the 50-80 mile range.

Got the wonky sidestand too, I had a guy fabricate and bolt about 1.5in extension to it because at 5'8 it was tricky to upright. Now it stays put 90% of the time but I still watch it. Appears they used the same sidestand for both models even tho the Terra is an inch + taller. It was the same with the F650 and Dakar, why make two different parts if one'll work.

I originally posted this to Café Husky, but was asked to post it here in the hope it would make the ADVrider photo gallery to show some Terra presence. I didn't know if I should post it here or in the ride reports section so I posted it here. I apologize if the multiple posting on another blog offends.

Chazbo, I just dropped it in the front page photo recommendations thread for you. There's some stiff competition in that thread though.

Thank you, RD. I am flattered and humbled. I see what you mean by stiff competition. Hopefully other TR 650 photos will be submitted that will make their way to the cover. I will try to do even better photo work and encourage other more talented owners to help get us out there. The TR 650 is a new model existing less than 1 year. Luggage and racks are just starting to show up. And the riding season is just beginning. I am hopeful.

Great shot there Chazbo!

Are those HappyTrails boxes? What rack are you using?

Yes, good eye. They are Happy-Trail racks and panniers. I got impatient waiting for HT and was going on a ride, so I adapted them from my 2009 KLR 650. It was an easy, no weld mod. I think I wrote about it in the Terra New Owners Stupid Questions thread, but for sure on Café Husky. Regardless, I posted a complete description of how to do it on my blog http://charlessk.wordpress.com/motor...pannier-racks/

Yes, that is a particularly well composed picture with breathtaking scenery. Husky could use that one!
