Default Got her in March...

Just hit 9,000 so looks like we shall join the club just about New Year's (if the gringo interpretation of the Mayan calender be hoooie). A for sure 300 miles next weekend plus the usual 25 to work and back during the week. Truly a fan of the machine.

Default Not there yet

Bought my Wee Strom (SUZI) on July 25 and only up to 12 300 km so far. Then again, with two cars as well, it's hard to find the time to do some real distance.
However, the mechanic who did the 6000 service did the 12 000 service just over a fortnight later.

SUZI - I'm in love with her, but I'm afraid she's taking me for a ride.

Isn't there an area south of the Panama canal that is supposed to be impassable on land??

Hey Tom,
Not sure if anyone else has asked you, but other than routine maint....have you had any issues (major or minor) with the new Wee?

I have had no issues at all on mine so far. Oil changes and tires have been it. I really love ridng this bike! Fuel mileage is noticeably better than my 2006 was, performance is better and I don't feel any need to upgrade the suspension (even though I am fairly fat right now.)
