Indy has developed a rather third-world approach to street maintenance of late.
This is why I really like the Wee. I used to have a KLR, but the extra horsepower makes up for being slightly less agile. I hated not being able to accelerate (enough) when I was already going 70. Commuting on L.A. freeways on a KLR was kind of intense. Tapped out at 85, with cars tailgating you. Not fun,
