White Wee2 - Highway 16 - Sugar Grove Va.

Today, Highway 16 in the Sugar Grove area of southwest Virginia. Nice new white Wee2 went cruising by at roughly 1:00 PM as I was about to pull onto the highway. Would have followed and tried to strike-up a conversation but I'd run my Wee down to near empty on fuel to lighten the bike for front tire change and both low-fuel icons / bars were flashing - so I stopped for fuel a mile away.

Spectacular day here. Mid 70s. Clear sky. No humidity. No bugs. Nice new PR4 Trail on the front. Just generally nice all around.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 43K+. Love it!

I ride Highway 16 a lot. Especially on weekends I see groups of 3-8 bikes, many adventure-type bikes, on that road. This past weekend I saw one group of about 8 such bikes and one, at least, was a Strom.

Since I'm only about an hour (or a bit less) from the Carolina line I've always assumed most of these groups of bikes are owned by guys in NC - making their way "up" Hwy 16 to Marion then on to Tazewell and maybe beyond.

On a nice weekend there are probably several hundred bikes on Hwy 16 that pass through the Marion VA area. Seem to be lots of BMWs (GSs), but a fair number of Stroms too.

Just seems to be more and more bikes...
