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:

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