My Wee on TV!

In the linked video from Omaha ABC TV station you can see my new to me Wee! It should arrive at my house tomorrow. The story is pretty cool too.

Those are storage bins where the driver puts stuff. My soft saddlebags and tank bag will likely be in one.

Here is another video. It shows the Wee better.

I just bought my Wee from a seller in Arkansas and it was on the way where the stripper was going to drop off the Triumph. I found the shipper on uship.com.
