That looks just like the corner where I passed a couple sport bikers; one of them had laid it down hard into the rocks and busted up his arm. Not long after that, I turned onto some canyon road (Carbon?) that looked like it went somewhere - it didn't, just to hiking trails - and hit some oil in a corner. I had to kick off the pavement to save it as the ass chased the nose! I didn't need to change my underwear, but it definitely woke me up.

I love that whole area. We have nothing like it in NH

Mike,

The paint job is awesome. It's got a very unique look, and I really like the desert sand better than the olive drab bikes I've seen.

I'm curious about the lighting you installed in your panniers. Would you mind posting a few photos and details?

Thanks! We just moved out this way less than two weeks ago and are really digging the topography!!! VA Beach before this was alright, but good riding was 2-3 hours away. Here, it's 10-20 miles either direction except west

The lights are pretty simple affairs.





All you need is some LED marker lights, grommets, a pair of plastic boxes from an electronics shop, some wire, connectors and some taps. I'll try to post up a detailed how-to on my website, or you can PM me.

You are all to blame!

Alright you dang Strom owners, after teasing me with all your great photos and stories on this awesome thread and others, I finally went and got me a Wee. I Just want you to know that I am holding you all responsible for everything that happens from here on. Keep an eye on your mailboxes for your share of farkle expenses, trip cost and any medical bills.
