Hoologan Freakin awesome! I love it when people show off on their Stroms. It inspires me to push it a little harder.

Glad we didn't have to go UP this kind of stuff.

Awesome Dorzok!

I think I need to swap my gel seat for the stock seat (or even find a lower 650 seat) when I do this type of stuff so I can reach the ground a little better. LOL

reach was not a problem. there was always a rock near by or we were in a 6" deep rut. if you're going to do this stuff i have 6 words for you; bash plate, bash plate, bash plate.

Which ones did you go with?

I've been thinking about upgrading mine.

Day trip with big orange bikes. Do puddles count as off-road?

Same day, different quad trail. This trail is not 4x4 friendly, a jeep would be too wide for this trail.

Believe it or not we are turning the bike around so I can go up and down this hill a second time because it was so much fun. It's steeper than it looks, straight on shots of slopes always look less steep because of the lack of perspective.

My Wee-Strom has been nekkid for a couple of years, now. Last summer I decided I wanted to try and improve the available wind protection for the 2 or 3 times per year that I ride it a ways on the highways to get to the gravel roads. A new face was in order. Here's where I'm heading......

.....Gen 1 Nekkid face



Gen 2 Nekkid face


I have some loose ends to tie up and some more minor fabrication, but it's nearly there. Rode it to work today. I like it a lot, so far. I actually prefer the looks of the single headlight but not much of this project has ever been about looks.

That twin headlight set up looks pretty bad-ass

I wonder why touratech hasn't got some kind of fairing replacement.
Something like the desierto fairing for BMW.

I would buy something like that.......even with a "touratech price"
(maybe even get rid of the buffeting )
