BTW does anyone have a Wee for sale in the Great Lakes Region?

There are sure to be some, Jim. Check e-bay and craigslist. You need to be assimilated.

Excellent contributions by the newest members.

Even though it's hotter than hell here in AZ, I still LOVE running my Wee through the twisties after work. MAN, I love the Stroms.

To be assimilated into the V-Strom Collective is a good thing.

I picked up an '03 DL1000 back in April. I plan on using it for solo and 2-up touring on mostly paved roads with some dirt and gravel mixed in. I already have the KLR650 for the more serious off-road travel requiring good ground clearance and more managable weight.

On a side note, me and buddy with a DL650 will be tackling the Continental Divide next month. I'll be taking the KLR because I don't want to beat up my 'Strom on a ride like that. (We plan on riding through the rough single track.) I'll post a ride report and let everyone know how it goes.

44, married, SE WI, blah blah...

About $280 for 12 month coverage. No winter storage discount as I ride/commute as much as possible.

hope this helps.

Just picked up a blue '07 Wee today.

No pics, because I've been helping a friend fix his fence until late in the night..maybe tomorrow.

Now I just need to debadge it, break in the engine a bit, get a centerstand, engine guard, skidplate, luggage, grip warmers, handguards, cover for when it rains, rainsuit for when it rains and I still want to ride, a fix for the buffeting problem...

If you are going through N TX, NM or Utah around the 18-21 next month, pm me. I'm heading that way; company would be fun.

We're going south to north, we should be up around Wyoming and Montana around that time.
