Hi. Curious problem but glad that it has gone away.
My "wee" is a 2005 model. Blue seems to be the best colour for these machines - so "blue"-tiful :-)
I am also an "old" biker with a "new" bike. I had several in my younger days over the years and then stopped riding when I got my first company car around the time of a nasty spill when a truck tried to use the same piece of road that I was on at the time... Around 25 years later when we downsized from a house in the 'burbs to an apartment in the city we got rid of one car and I got a bike again. After much tyre kicking and test riding I found the "wee" and fell in love at first ride. The rest is history. It had 36000km on the clock in 2012 when I bought it and it is just about to go over 100,000km :-)
Weestrommer and loving it!
