    Finally the new bikes taken it's place beside the TW

    FINALLY Picked up my new Strom 660XT SE. The bags are not in yet but bikes finally home none the less. Sadly we in for a big storm this afternoon so I couldn't go for much of a ride and basically took it straight home.

    Bike feels good so far very different then I remember my 07 feeling. Not so sure I am a fan of the bars though seems bit of a lean forward compare to the older model (nothing a bar riser can't fix).

    Thanks I pretty happy. I Got to do a short 120km little ride this afternoon. Very happy with the purchase thus far. It seems to be much more refined than the first gen model I had back in 2007. Engine pulls strong from down lower than I remember fuel is spot on and smooth, shifting is super smooth and the ride is quite comfy. Buffeting is not an issue for me and the engine though ultra quite seems to finally have some character and a nice sound too it. And it is smooth as can be at all revs.

    Couple more snaps from today's after work short ride.
