Picked up this Swiss Army Knife of a scooter last month. I have added a few farkles and am thoroughly pleased with my choice. If I could only have one bike in the garage it would be the Wee. Not since my 78 Yamaha DT 125 did I have a bike that could do it all.

Huh, I wouldn't have guessed. If you don't mind, what are the approximate measurements, pics of backsides? (I.E., is/are there cutouts for the exhaust(s)?)

There is a man named Dale Walker who is on Max Zuki more then here. He had a rally for all the B1250's & B1200's near his place in NV. We went for a ride on some nice twist and turns. Dale was killing everybody on the ride. He was on a Wee Strom DL 650. That bike is very nice and handles well too. I would have never thought that I would get dropped by a DL 650, but I did. However, he weighs in around 150lbs as well were as I tip the scales a bit higher (2X).

The Wee Strom may be the best all around bike ever built. A true Swiss Army knife of a bike.

I bought an 07 in Boston MA and rode it all the way back to Texas. Best bike I have ever owned.

I don't say this about Stroms much but that looks very nice. :clap:

Looks like you've been busy in the last month too. Crash bars, skid plate, centerstand, aftermarket seat (Sergeant?), Madstad bracket, GPS, bar risers and maybe grip puppies and throttle lock? Whose skid plate did you go with?

Sergeant on the seat and SW Tech crash bars and skid plate. Kacko throttle lock, just added OEM hand guards also.

Dale is an ex AMA superbike rider and NHRA bike drag racer he is the owner of Holeshot performance and a really nice guy and a fantastic racer. Not knocking your skills but he could probably drop 70% of street riders regardless of bike on the right roads

Its not always the tool but how you use it.

By the way nice V-Strom those are some big bags I would take them off before any dual sport rides they look expensive to replace
