I just purchased a 2012 Wee-Strom adventure!!! I haven't owned a bike in 28 years (I'm 53). It's really exciting to be back in the sport. Wow, bikes have changed. ABS, fuel injection, adventure bikes, etc. I picked the Wee-Strom for it's versatility and the riding position and it's somewhat of a conservative bike. It's a really fun bike. The standard model wasn't available ANYWHERE close but I got an awesome deal on the adventure model. I was planning on adding the extras anyway. I would have chosen different panniers though. The stock ones are functional but a bit over done. I can't wait to get it broken in!
