I looked for a couple hours, but didn't see this anywhere, sry if i'm posting in the wrong spot...
I bought a 2011 Wee last year and I'm considering upgrading(?) to a 2012. I am wondering if the following farkles from my 2011, will work on a 2012?:
1. Factory Hand Guards
2. Factory Center Stand
3. PWD Accessory Shelf
4. Madstad Bracket
5. Givi Windshield
6. Mirror Extenders
I'd also like to elicit some opinions (gulp). I'm 5'10", 29" inseam, on the heavier side. I have a bad hip that has been fixed/replaced. I really like my Wee, not sure I'm in love with it. I love the engine, satisfied with the brakes. Stock suspension dives too much to my liking when stopping. After riding for 15 or 20 minutes my hands go numb. I feel like the seat back where it curves to the passenger section need to be about and inch or 2 further back along with the handlebars. Even with the Madstad and Givi windshield, I can't get rid of the wind buffeting.
I know I can solve some of this with:
1. After market seat, lower pegs, add highway pegs, and lower suspension front and back along with a 2" Rox for the handlebars.
2. A different windshield, perhaps Givi AF260
I've test driven a couple "forward control" bikes, but I've never been a "Harley" type guy. (Harley VStar Boulevard Vulcan). But I'm seriously considering it.
I bought the Wee last year after about a 15 year hiatus from riding. When I used to get done riding, I'd get off and think "man I want to go ride some more". Nowadays, I get off and think, man I'm glad that is over.
Is the wind issue solved at all on the 2012?
With the stiffer suspension, does the front end dive as much when braking?
Is it more comforable? I know that one is TOTALLY subjective.
Thanks for reading my Rant.
