Before I start, I want to say that I'm a current 2011 Wee owner and long time bike rider (mostly enduros and dirt bikes). My question is this: why are Adventure bikes so popular when they really don't ride as well as a street bike or a dirt bike? If you want a road/street bike..ride a street bike. If you want an off-road bike, buy a dirt bike. Right? Because you can't tell me that an Adventure bike will ride as well as the top road bike on the road or top dirt bike off-road. It's like when I bought my first boat it was a fish and ski model..because I liked to do both. But, I learned very quickly it really wasn't a good ski boat or a really good fishing boat. Same with SUVs. I've owned em all and I can tell you for a fact, they are really not that good for off-road (like a Jeep) and they're really not that good for all-road (like a sedan). So, why did I buy my Wee? I thought it could do both well and I was wrong. It's ok on the road for long trips..but the only way to get it really road acceptable is to farkle the hell out of it. Same with off-road, I took my Wee off-road and it doesn't come close to riding like my dirt bikes. It's just too big/bulky/heavy and has too much crap on it (lights/turn signals/cases/etc). Yes, I realize not everyone has money to buy a dedicated dirt bike and/or road bike and that an ADV is a compromise for both. But, are we kidding ourselves into believing our Wee does both equally as well? I don't, but I know a lot of Wee owners (who drink the koolaid) believe their bikes do EVERYTHING well. Since 95% of my riding is done on the highway, I think my next bike will be a touring or sport touring bike. Make sense? Or, is there really an ADV bike that does it all better than the rest? i.e. KTM, BMW, Ducati, etc.
