So in Texas these days, smaller is better? I'll have to inform the transplants up here - if I can get a word in edge-wise.

I was jokinbg on advrider that as far as I'm concerned, it should be called Commrider.com - for commuter. Because that's a lot of the mileage of a lot of the bikes. For me, it's at least half if not two thirds.

If Suzuki were to put the Vee powerplant in a Gladius, I'd buy one of them tonight!

That is a Dumb Move.......

I'm sure that even Dr. Phil would give one of his signature "Whaddayou Thinkin" statements.

Sorry to ruin your ideas but they do not sell well downunder generally they are not regarded well Vstrom 650 kills it in any comaprision.

By the way if you drop one , you will pay enough money you think you bought Du Point's plastic business.

Boring looks and too heavy. The build quality will be impecable though given its a Honda. I like the Varadero better but its still too heavy.

ockerstrom K9 Wee straight off the showroom floor.
Givi top box and panniers included in the deal.

Then I went for a fourteen day ride, almost 3000 miles.

The Wee is already a great tourer.

Ock.
