After looking at the picture again it sure does look like it's on the ground, but it really is hanging from the passenger peg since I did almost drop it 2 minutes before that shot .

Helipilot-

If it's not too personal, what do you weigh? Do you have heavy bags, etc? What weight oil?

Thanks.

If I would have know it would be this good I would have done it right after I bought it. Breaks work better, handling is faster and lighter. Holds the corners better. Rough road is way better. I have put 13000 miles on this bike and now I just put 120 today with the new Springs. It a whole new bike!!!!!!! Everyone should try it. Only took about an hour and a half. Cutting the new spacers takes the longest time. Anyone can do this Job

New WeeStrom

Picked mine up Saturday after two years of lurking and researching. I've limited my riding to off-road only for the last 22 years and though it was time to add some road riding. I only managed 14 miles last weekend but hope to get a bunch more this weekend.

Took my '04 Wee down to run a 50k trail race this weekend at Mt. Cheaha, AL (highest point in the state). She was a beauty for this trip and quite fun on the windy roads.

Ha! Yeah, sorry about that. No snow here. Was sunny, though my ride home last night dropped below 30 and I don't have heated gear (other than grips). So there was plenty of shivering for sure!

New V-Strom!!

Got my "new" '09 V-Strom delivered to Dallas on Friday and burned a whole tank just driving around on Saturday. These are all from South Dallas and Deep Ellum areas. Anyone in the DFW area want to ride let me know. Enjoy!
