Hi all,
My 6th bike in 50 years is an almost new 2017 Wee 650. It was time for me to downsize from my 1850cc, 900# cruiser. I was able to make a straight up bike trade with a nearby SoCal resident: Givi screen, 2 sets of tires, upgraded seat, non-functioning fog light (I need to debug wiring), cage, luggage brackets. I did need to replace seat with Suz. short seat and back off spring pre-load, as I have 29" inseam, but all is well now (anyone interested in an MINT Sear Concepts Comfort Tall seat?). 2/3 the power, half the weight, and I'm still on 2 wheels - YEA! Looking forward to racking up some miles in the local mountains. Photo from day 1 at new home.

Previous owner definitely farkled your bike up. T-Rex racing crash bars AND skid plate. Pannier support, GIVI airflow windscreen, etc. I'm in South Orange County and ride a lot in the SoCal area. PM me if you want to join. I have a '21 650 XT.

I might be interested in a trade of sorts. If you check the for sale forum I have racks and cases from Shad in top notch condition.

I know I've seen the case guards on the bike before. Who makes those? I need a set for my new BMW if I want to use the soft bags I have.
Where in So Cal?

You retired? I is . Maybe come by and see how those guards look? I'm going to have a muffler problem on my new F750GS. Unless I can find some used factory bags!

Yes, I'm retired. We can hook up so you can check them out. I see you're from Pasadena, want to meet in Chino Hills? I can meet you at Costco on Peyton Dr. just off 71, latter part of weekday morning to avoid commute traffic. When?
