Hello all. I just acquired a 2005 Wee 650 and have 55 miles on it now. I traded a truck for it last Tuesday and I’m so glad I traded. What an absolutely amazing motorbike!!! I’m from central Indiana and looking forward to chatting with you all.

Welcome to the forum! Lots of good folks on here. Hang around, and join one of the East Coast rides. They are a good time. Depending on your build, most folks have to make some adjustments to make the bike comfortable for longer rides. Iíll look forward to reading your posts.

Welcome to the forum, WeeBeir.


I know what you mean, I went from a '86 VT700 Shadow to the Wee and have loved every minute.

Welcome!

Not only is it a nice looking bike but red bikes are always fastest!

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
