My wife has been hinting for several months that it would fun to do some weekend rides, so I acquired a 2003 Vee on Friday to round out the herd. It will mainly be used for two up rides on graded bladed stuff. It came with a top case, centerstand, larger windscreen, and some soft bags.
I am thinking of adding Givi crash bars and the Enduro Guardian skid plate. This may be overkill for the intended purpose, but they will make me feel a lot better.:thumbup:
My last multicylindered bike was a 1984 650 Nighthawk, and I haven't ridden on the street since about 1987. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the Vee was to ride, and took the roundabout way on the way home from emissions testing just to get on the highway. I can see how they just eat up the miles with little effort. Is it just me or do you need to be going about 80 mph to not lug it in 6th?
