Picture taken about 10 minutes before it got stuck in a ditch between a very big rock and a tree. It pays to be extra careful on the twistiest road of the day after a long day of twisties.

Thanks - Myself, bike, tree and rock are doing fine. Just some plastic bits needed to be replaced and the stock bars were bent, so I replaced them with the ProTaper ATV bars and am very pleased.
It's my second Strom and this bike is a real pleasure to ride. I actually prefer the older gen models to the 2012+ models.

Here's my first one:

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

My '07 Weestrom

This is my '07 Weestrom (DL650A), which I bought 2 years ago after riding mostly nakeds and sportbikes since I got my licence in '96. I love this bike, because it gets me everywhere I want. On the twisties I can keep up (in the corners) with my friends who ride much more sporty bikes, and I can also take it off the pavement every now and then. I am not an offroad rider (yet), but after a one day course and some practise I manage to get the thing through some rougher terrain.

this is also the bike with which I really started enjoying long trips. Rode it along Scotland and recently completed a three week trip around the Baltic sea with it. Awesome!

It is not heavily farkled or anything, but I did put on an ipod shuffle for the long days in the saddle :-)

After a day on an "allroad course" (handling the bike in this loose sand was a bit too much for me, very heavy, dropped it a couple times, riding a G450 with knobbies was much easier):


Bike packed up and ready to go on a trip:

Gota check that out. Waco's got lots of great scenery. Are those Kenda big blocks on your Strom? I've been thinking about running a hard soft combo 705 rear and big block front for little better dirt performance.

Riding near Waco

You don't have to look very hard. Most places have dirt roads connecting them anyway. Here's Hamilton.
