Rode the Wee for nine hours Monday and took her down a road I know well with great turns and a lot of patchy pavement and pot holes.
Ran 33/36 psi in the Pilot Road 3 Trail tires.
Solo, with no luggage.
Ricor valves, .90 Sonic springs, 5 wt amsoil fork oil. No drilling or welding of holes in damper rods or valve body.
Elka shock with triple adjustments and remote reservoir.
Wow! Wow! Wow!
Freaking amazing handling bike.
After riding my Ducati Monster on Saturday, my Honda RC51 on Sunday, and then this 2004 DL650 V-Strom on Monday, if I could only have one bike, it would be the V-Strom.
These tires and suspension have made this bike a spectacularly great handling machine. I'd put her up against anything on a twisty road. I am shocked at how good this machine is.
Just do it.
It's more fun riding a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow.
