I am having a hoot on the WeeStrom, I changed over from a Yamaha YZF600 a few months ago. The Yammie was a great bike, but not relaxing - very racing position, stiff arms, had to be watching it the whole time - very responsive, but not terribly stable. The WeeStrom is so gentle and nice to ride, and you can just go have fun - loving it. I have put Bluetooth on the helmet to listen to music as I ride - just brilliant!It's either a worn out battery simply from age, or it's got that way from insufficient charging voltage. Only way to find out is with a new battery.
Another reason I'm hoping to get a Wee3: built-in voltage meter. When I thought I would be buying the 2015, I was dreading the thought of running wires for one. No, it's not the most challenging modification, but I had my fill of constant projects on the 2007 Vee. I want a Vstrom I can simply go ride.
I'm aiming to go off road and camping, but I need to get a few things sorted on it yet.
I can understand why you wouldn;t want to do it all again if you have already been down the track on your old Vee ...
