I really respect your choice of vehicle, and especially that you're coming from an FJR. It reminds me of one of my favorite Einstein quotes: "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction" But right now I think it's the 2012 Wee that calls out to me. It's a little bit bigger and a little bit longer legged I imagine. And a little bit better with a passenger and so on. I think part of the success of the Wee is that it's a sensible middle class bike that is a size "L" in it's packaging. A lot of other japanese medium sized bikes are so small you could lose them behind a set of tyres. Yupp - I was considering that. Sadly though insurance is too expensive for me, insurance can be really weird where I live. It's up and down and all over the place for different bikes.
