If you want a soul stirring, passionate bike with looks and brawn, no.
If you want a two wheeled Swiss army knife, with all the personality of a dishwasher, yes.

The Good: In the last 14 months I've put 14,000 miles on mine with nothing other than tires and oil.
The Bad: I had to reset the clock for daylight savings time.(which was a pain in the ass)
The Ugly: It's ugly! (2012 and up, not as ugly though)

I've done 500 mile days, visited multiple states, drug pegs, been off road a bit, and tossed it a couple times in the dirt.
I LOVE my Wee (2011 DL650A) and should it come up missing or damaged, I would buy another to replace it without a second thought.

(check out the Tennessee Plates thread in my signature to see what Me and the Wee have been up to this year)

All the best,
8TM
