Just got back from my first road trip on my '13... performed perfectly in every way. Here's a photo I'm using on my ride report- no skid plate, no crash bar... no worries!

Ditto that. Looks like you have the same duplicate red '06 Wee. It's a common problem. . .

you have an amazing amount of dirt roads that are still too much for the strom.

How did the Giant Loop Great Basin bag work out on the 'strom.? I have been considering getting that exact same one.

Found a little dirt road off the Blue Ridge Parkway this weekend. I was impressed with the capability and responsiveness of the bike in the leaves and mud. Not a light nimble bike, but enough.

Here's the video that goes with my Blue Ridge Parkway ride. Most of the video is offroad and dirt road riding.
