    That is a sweet looking ride and it will be way more nimble in the rough stuff. Congrats!

    yup, did a camping trip out to East Harrison with Mark (SPectyr) and Gerry, 256 KM each way on the bike. the seat is a little rough for distances like that but i found she did highway speed pretty well, even all loaded up.

    also done some pretty technical enduro riding with it, it does OK for a 300 pound bike. i sure will be able to get all the places i wanted to go on the strom but couldnt. the rear rack i installed was from moose racing. still deciding if i want to get soft luggage, or a rack for the hard luggage i already have. I think i may stick with the soft, it doesn't like a lot of weight over the rear.

    The OEM tires are crap, get into any sort of mud, clay, or roots and it might as well be ice. i got an DOT trials tire coming which should be exellent for our BC terrain.
