Advice Needed

Thinking about buying an 650 Strom, 07 model. Apart from having "soft" rims, are there any common faults/problems with the Stroms that I need to look/be aware of?
Thanks.

I have an 05 model. 28F and 30R... 90% of my riding is on tar. On loose dirt, I let them down to 21F and 26R.
If you run the low pressures on tar at speeds, they will wear out faster.
