2 up on a Wee
Hi, new here but its just about the only place I am new.
I have had in no particular order;
Suzuki small crusier
HD Dyna x2
BMW K12 LT x2
BMW K12 RS
Yamaha FJR Gen 2
and currently ride a 2008 GL 1800, my 2011 IBR finishing bike.
At age 67 with a not so good back and eyes, my solo serious extreme LD riding and multi Rally days are behind me and I am looking to downsize. Considerably!
My riding has slowed to weekend 2 up day trips on mostly secondary roads, some gravel and hard pan surfaces (I have no desire to get into dirt).
The bike, whichever one it winds up being, will see primary duty in the foothills of east Tn. I would like to be able to make an occasional non interstate, except when perhaps going around a large city, multi day trip/500 per day with a passenger. Our combined weight with gear would be near 410 lbs. Me, 6'2". She 5'7".
The Wee's (and Vee) riding position, ABS, weight and MPG appeals to me but is a Wee a reasonable choice? Or should I look closer at a Vee?
