I just got back from a 900 mile run down to Ocracoke Island on the OBX. This bike is awesome. Where the sand blew across the road, the other bikes were dodging away add i headed straight into the fray. Digging and spinning. Big grins. Then over the mountain coming home i shredded the tires all the way to the edges.

Awesome machine, although i am not thrilled about holding 6,000 rpm on the highway.

Sorry. No noteworthy pictures on the phone. Maybe i will post the trip over the mountain if i youtube it.

I agree. That is my only complaint with my 'wee.

But then it just encourages me to avoid the 'slab.

Wow whipit1k! That's some hot looking bike. I like the abbreviated front and rear and the diamond plate below the seat and trim on the radiator. Nice paint work too. Who knew the Wee (or is it a Vee) could be so masculine looking!

Is that a skid plate with the front exhaust on the outside of it? Part of the aggressive look!

My favorite view of the bike . . . from the seat!
