Wee Willie,

Yep, I totally understand.

However, I did decide to trade my 2002 ZRX1200, complete with Akrapovic full exhaust, lots of motor mods, jetted and messed with airbox in on my V-Strom.

Last time it was on the dyno, the ZRX was pushing 136 rwhp with 88 foot pounds of torque. That was a sweet ride. However, it does cause extreme jeopardy to one's license!

Good luck and keep both wheels on the ground.

Here I thought all along you were just a meek mannered Vee Strom rider.

If your the Willie I think you are, than I am very surprised that you bought a Wee. Hmm, Age maybe? I'll have to ask Paul Dean I guess. LOL

YO Shep! The Wee is just fine for sedate traveling (to Reno, Willow Springs, Alaska), but I sometimes duck into a phone booth and emerge with a "Big Red S" on my chest, it's those days that the Bandit comes in handy. Weekday rides on Hwy 55 or 21 to Stanley! We all have an Alter Ego or some sort within us.

Hey B, always been an addict, just fell of the wagon and jumped back in with both feet.

The write-ups in Cycle World, Rider and Motorcyclist were inspiring and just one short ride sealed the deal. With only 200 miles on the odo, I am looking forward to what it will run like with a couple thousand miles on it!

Thanks All,
Willie
