Another new 2012 Wee-Strom owner here. I've only been riding for 11 years/64k miles and my Wee is my 4th bike. I'll be 60 in August and wanted a lighter, more maneuverable bike. My wife no longer rides with me, so my Nomad will be sold shortly. I've ridden nothing but cruisers til now, but I am a convert to the Wee-Strom.
A friend of mine, an MSF Coach told me that one of the dealerships he holds classes at, had some Vee and Wee Stroms in and that a Standard was due soon. Turns out they had a 650 Adventure sitting on the floor and after talking with the owner for a few minutes, he said he could remove the bags and brackets and sell it to me as a Standard, leaving on the touring shield and engine guards. I posted a little about this in the 650-2012 pricing thread a few days ago. So, I test rode it on Friday afternoon, firmed up a decent deal when I got back, rode it home yesterday in a little rain. Went out today for a short ride (darned threat of rain prevented me from going for a longer ride) and I think I'm in love.
I'll post my first impressions in the 650 2012 folder.
Great forum. Glad to be here.
