Hey man, welcome.

I am in Lenexa and have an '07 650 with MadStad and some other farkles. I bought mine from Olathe Suzuki and had a great experience. Let me know when you get your bike.

I should hear from the dealer tuesday about when they will get it in. Im dealing with Donnell's on 40 hwy.I was thinking about getting the suzuki bags but might just get the givi instead.I just dont know which ones to get! I kinda like the e36n. They look good on some of the wee's Ive seen.Nice to know there is somebody close with a wee also. I just sold my 650 gs L model. She was a beaut!

I just put a deposit on my bike! It has been shipped and will probably show up on friday or tuesday.Im getting the Suzuki trunk case and side cases.They are made for suzuki by Givi. I will order them when I pick up the bike and also order the madstad bracket too.I work 65 hours a week and only have tuesday and thursday nights and sunday's off so I will have to pick it up on tuesday of next week.I hope the weather is nice.I got them to come down to 6500 + 15% off on all accesories ordered.I hope that's a good deal.

I called the dealer today and the bike will probably show up tuesday! I will be ready to ride after that except for the fact that I work 65 hours a week!Tuesday and Thursday evenings are my nights off and sunday Im off all day.I work 2 jobs and have made enough money to pay cash for my bike.I work at the new Bass Pro in Independence in the tracker marine service dept.rigging and detailing boats and utility vehicles.We will have to get together on a sunday for a ride!Im getting the black 08 and the Suzuki top and side cases.My Givi touring shield will be here Tuesday and hopefully I will have a bike to put it on that day.I just sold my 83 Suzuki GS 650 L that was in mint condition so I could get this Wee Strom. It was a beauty and fun to ride!
