Hmmm, at least half the miles on my bike were done at night.

That's one thing that has really sold me on the Strom was the GREAT headlites

I know mine are a little high (With the low beams, I get a lot of SHIT from on coming traffic) and the high beams pretty much shine above the roads surface. But I've never adjusted them, they came that way when I bought it. So that might be the difference for me.

Wicked 03 Dl1000

Arriving at 20,000 miles. The new mapping for FI helped. No problems- and it gets flogged on a regular basis.

I am thinking real hard about putting some 35 watt aux lights on and fork mounting them

if you take if the side refelectors that looks like a good mounting point

YO! I've lurked in this site long enough...time to join in on the fun.
Own a 2005 Wee...ride it every single day, and if you've seen the weather map you'll see what a lovely winter we are having in Seattle. I should have bought a jet-ski.
Previous bikes have been, well, dang near everything up till about 1995. Then had a short break till now. Happy again!
I'm going to try and figure out this photo posting thing...

I've got a K3 DL1000 and liked it so much I got a K4 DL650 as a second bike. I like em both for different reasons. I like the one I'm riding at the time the best!!

edit: Oh yeah, the ball looking thingy at the end of the clutch lever also broke off. But still no scratches to the fairing, etc.
You can use some lockhart phillips flush mounts but the bulb is smaller so will flash faster. Also, a replacement clutch lever isn't too expensive so may just want to keep a spare around. BTW, I had the flush mounts, but I the fast flashing annoyed me in time. The whole light kit is about $31 where I order my OEM stuff from. http://www.187rideeasy.com/

Stopped at the local dealer today, he's got two red wee's in stock. Thankfully, it was cold, windy and snow on the ground today, so I was able to leave with out a bike. Of course it's supposed to be in the fiftes again the rest of the week.
