Hello,

I'm Mark, a motorcycle tuner from Hinckley, known for BMWs mainly although we do everything.

I've owned a couple Stroms over the years - the first was a Kwak KLV 1000 about 10 years ago, which despite being the most comfortable bike I've ever owned had an absolute pig of an engine and seemed to rust before my eyes, then a 650 which was a sweet engine and was - don't flame me - the better bike of the two. I changed that for an SV650 which was great but nowhere near as comfy.

Cheers!

Hello and  :welcome2:
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.
