My wife doesn't like the Wee

My wife (a Harley Sportster rider) scratches her head.
She doesn't get it.

Lower, louder and shinier are better in her book.

She's 5'-6" and is a little intimidated by the Vstrom.
One of these days she'll take it for a spin and then maybe she'll get it

Being of an open mind, the other day I took a Harley Road Glide for a ride, after spending all day on my Wee (with a stock seat).


My impression:

I really liked the seat.

LOL... sat on a Road King the other day, and that was my first impression too.
Kind of like getting a "butt hug"

I have met Steve Bond and chatted with him at a bike show a cpl years ago after his first glowing review of the 650. As I have said on many occassions, I know people who know a heck of a lot more about motorcycles than me and when they all say the 650 is the better machine, why should I not listen to them :twisted:

Steve Bond reviewed the DL1000 on July 14:

He mentions the DL650 at the end. You can maybe guess how he sums up the article? :mrgreen:
