What don't you like about the Trailwings?

I've been kicking around the thought of getting a 16t sprocket...if for nothing else, so the damn speedo will be close to correct. I hate that.

The deal with the Vee fell through. Guess I'm back looking...the local dealer has a left over 2011 Wee for $6500. Leaning heavily on that one.

Like I said, What are my options for communicating with the passenger? I suppose it doesn't even have to be wireless.
