5640 Mile Trip PICS ADDED
I just returned from a 5640 mile 13 day trip (Route 66 Chicago to LA) on my Wee and I would like to make a few comments/observations.
First off, the bike performed flawlessly! The only thing I did was, add gasoline, lube the chain and change oil.
For touring barbacks are a good idea.
Crosswinds through OK and TX were 40+mph and the Wee did not even flintch...the addition of the Super Brace was a blessing there.
Highway pegs gave much needed relief to my 55 year old bad knees.
It is not a good idea to sneeze without raising your face shield first.
My Arse appreciates the Spencer LD modded seat.
Through a combined 60/40 highway/secondary (Route 66) roads, the Wee averaged 51.5 MPG!
The Wee loves 5200-5500 RPM.
Metzler Marathon 880 tires rock for touring.
Flat Black 08' DL650. Lots 0' goodies
