Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

Don't let the height keep you from buying it. In the Adv world it doesn't get any lower than a DL650.

Spend $30 for lowering links and raise the forks a pinch. I would help you do it, 30 minutes max. The modded seat can be swapped back to stock. I have a stock seat you could try and a low seat is available also.

Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

Yeah, maybe not as big a deal as I was thinking. Good to know the mod is not pricey. These are tall bikes. I test rode a '08 Versys 650 recently and '07 Wee 650. The Wee just felt so much better to me overall. That Wee was stock and I was able to flat foot it.

I appreciate the offer for help here. We'll see how she goes.

Just spoke to Rod, he should be here mid-day this Saturday so I can see his bike firsthand, first time. TWT member BigBird lives a couple blocks from me. He may have a stock Wee seat and he said he wants to come meet Rod in person.

Looks like we may be having an unscheduled Wee Strom mini-meet up.

Thanks again, e.

Let's Ride! Friday, 1/17

OK... I've been totally consumed with my latest educational venture, and Big Bird says I need to ride...

Current Weather forecast is 20% rain in the morning, and 30% and possible T-storms in the afternoon... I'll take that chance!

I'm thinking a KSU no later than 0900, could be Busters in New Caney or Javaman in Atascocita.

200 miles, about 4 hours road time. Stop at Alabama Coushatta Smoke shop around 100 miles for fuel, hydration.

Avoiding San Jacinto County for some reason... OK... here's a map!

Who's in???

Re: NE Houston - Atascocita/Humble area riders!

Ok... news flash... now it sounds like we will need rain gear and wayer wings tomorrow. Went from 20 to 30% to 60%...

Saturday still looks good. Can we move the ride to Saturday? Same time, same place?

Ok, I have been trying to meet up with you guys forever... It's looking better than common for tomorrow, so maybe I will meet you guys at Buster's. At this point, just depends on how long tonight is... If coming, I won't be late!
