buying in this economy
Ok, here's what my research has found so far: The Wee is a fantastic bike for just about anything, except, maybe, two-up long distance touring. If you into big time touring find a wing or get the Vee just because they are better suited for the long time on the road stuff.
But, here's the other thing that comes to my attention: the Wee is great, IF, you upgrade the front forks and rear shocks, and improve the seat and stuff, etc. So, I have to ask: I am 6'4" and weight over 200 pounds. If I will eventually need to upgrade most of the suspension of the Wee cause my size will push the suspension to it's limit, would I be better off just jumping to the Vee and gaining in the suspension department from the start?
I want to be riding in all environments both on and off road as a solo driver. My wife has her bike and she has no interests to go where I might be going in the method that I might choose to go. Besides, I already have a bike for two up touring. Therefore, I am interested in finding an economical ride that can handle my body weight both on and off road.
You guys & girls have cheered the praises of the Vee/Wee so well that I have been distracted from the Tiger page to check out the DL's so I am here looking for your experienced advice. So...
What's your opinion? Specifics: big guy, both on/off road, touring solo and commuting...let's hear ya!
