I've never run the 705s before but I've ridden with quite few guys who run them and are very happy with them - and on heavier bikes than the Strom. If they don't work I'll swap them out. I'll let you know.

Nice looking bike. Word of wisdom . Loose the bungie cords and get some proper straps for your strap on luggage. Much much safer.

Just a suggestion;
You may want to carry at least a pair of tie down straps in case you break down and have to have it hauled somewhere. You never know if a tow truck will have the right stuff so as not to tear your bike up.
