    I use the SW Motech quick lock jobs and the Wolfman wraparound bag adaptor kit. Works very well, and if I want to set up for hard bags doing pavement trips, they'll work dandy for that too.

    I've been lurking and learning here for a while - just joined last night! I have enjoyed all of the great photographs on this forum, and also in this thread.

    Here is an image of my bike that I captured last night before riding home from work.

    Thank you both for your encouragement! I really have been inspired by some amazing photography on this forum. For example, Kreegah - your image in the field is great!

    On another note, I started a blog that puts all of my farkles and thoughts in one place. It's a work in progress as I have only had it up for about a week. Hopefully it will help someone else along the way as I gathered all of my "Wishlist Items" from here, two other forums, and about 15 different websites.

    Thanks EVLED and MrGoldfish! I plan on putting up some pictures soon of some cool old bikes in a WWII museum I went to.

    I had to do some errands today so took the Strom out and ended up by Lake Ponchartrain. Watched an angler land a shark and a nice redfish. He was still doing well when I left....

    Went out for a nice ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway today after a morning getting some minor work done in Brevard. Rode up to Black Balsam and then back to Asheville. Gorgeous day out today! Saw a few other Strom riders on the BRP as well, so if you saw a guy with a red 'Stitch, white helmet and this beauty between his legs...it was me.
    I desperately need to get some racks and a topcase mounted so I can haul all my crap I don't need....

    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:
