Kicking Hardley butts is Hardley an accomplishment for a Wee. Wee is capable of much more.

I have personally zipped by some crotch rockets on Highway 17 on my Wee. Ofcourse I travel that Highway to/from work and have done that the last 4 years. :rolleyes:

Surely you can only tell on a racetrack? I followed 2 Harleys a couple of weeks ago, the 1st one made every effort to stay in front of me but was a big wuss in the corners, the 2nd one I could only have kept up with if I was riding solo! He knew what he was doing and don't underestimate the acceleration of a big hog, I was impressed. Unlike the earlier guy. I need to do a track day before I get any bragging rights. Having said that, the big V is the fastest bike I have had and I wouldn't change it . Have fun and ride safe

I really don't race. My Wee goes fast enough for me without having to prove it to other motorcyclists.

Guess I should have been wearing pants...

I passed a Hayabusa tonight at Quaker Steak and Lube bike night.
Of course, it was just sitting there with no rider on it....but I still passed it:mrgreen:

Huffy. I toast those guys, no matter how hard they pedal. And let's not even start on the Big Wheels.:mrgreen:

I beat the heck out of some kid on a razor scooter. He thought he had me after the first quarter mile but after that, I smoked him. Little punk is probably still out there crying. Maybe I'll give him another chance and go downhill this time instead of uphill. Damn, that kid could scoot.
