Just got back from my first trip on my Wee 2 and I have to say is "it never stopped amazing me what it could do!" This bike, hands down, is the best I have ever owned/ridden.
Agreed, big-time - and this is coming from a guy who's owned a ridiculous number of bikes! (I used to buy them, fix them up, and sell them in the 1980s...) I had to travel a couple of hundred miles to Pennsylvania to pick up my new Wee 2, and spent that whole weekend running the twisties in the Poconos and falling more and more in love with it. Wore all
the shine off the tires, no "chicken strips" left - and the bike did absolutely everything I asked it to do.
1) This is the first brand-new bike I've ever owned;
2) It's the first "made after 2000" bike I've had;
3) It's the first fuel-injected bike I've ever had; and
4) I've still got "new bike fever" in full measure -
BUT it's still... just fantastic. My GF has ridden pillion for about 90% of the 1600 miles I've already put on it, and she is as eager as I am, if not more, to go explore, play, and cruise aboard this lovely machine. Yesterday, we put another couple of hundred miles on it - fishing the reservoirs in Putnam County, NY. The best places were off the road, and the Wee handled us (and I'm a big
boy) plus a good 50 lbs of gear, plus a couple of fishing rods (which fit perfectly
inside the license plate bracket; a Velcro strap 3/4 of the way up, and you can ride with them in place!) over gravel, through tall grass, and up/down steep-ish gravelly inclines. It was also (almost) a pleasure going over the NYC potholed roads that used to punish us so badly and watching the Wee glide over them with barely a bump - nothing but excited 'SQUEEE!' from the GF.
I look forward to the next 100,000 miles!
