Cool Almost not curious anymore!

Aloha all, I've been lurking for a while since I first considered a Wee a couple of years ago, bought a Buell XB9SX for the uniqueness. Buell was fantastic handling but a bit too hard on my aching old back. Just sold the Buell and have a 2011 white 650 ABS on the way from the mainland SOON. Suzook dealer here (Hawaii) could get me one in 5 or 6 months ! so went with a dealer in San Diego. Let the farkling begin !

bad back

I had a spell of back pain several years ago, thankfully some therapy and stretching have helped me. You might want to consider the up and back handle bar farkle. It helps to keep you upright, better posture, help with my back, I hope it can help yours!

Any update? Man, Hawaii must be a beautiful place to ride a bike. Especially the big island.
