Default Hello from Texas

It's prime riding season in Texas so I just picked up an 2011 WEE 650A black (fast one) yesterday. I'm not new to bikes, KTM 950 and DR650 both black are in the stable. I'm impressed so far with the quiet ride and handling. ADV ride this weekend in Hamilton TX with my KLR buddies so the DR will come out. I have been lurking for a month and finally found this new ride. A few more farkles and fix the PO mistakes.

Thanks for having me along with this forum,

Coolhand

I just ran thru the first tank of gas. The fuel gage flashed at 230 miles.
52 mpg on the crap gas from the metro mess.

"crap gas from the metro mess."

I had no problem getting top tier gas the DFW area. 52 isn't bad in any case. You still had quite a bit of fuel remaining in the tank.
With a twist of the wrist, your mileage will vary!
