Hello from IL

I signed up to have a look at the Versys and see if I might want to add one to the garage. I've done a fair amount of touring on a Wee Strom and have heard good things about the Versys.

Anyone here ridden both??

yep, but only ridden a demo of wee strom same time I test rode my Versys, just for my style that love's going quick through corners and more agresive the twisties the better found the V a lot more nimble and flickable and the strom felt more top heavy IMHO.

Welcome! I've never ridden a wee-storm so I can't give any advice, but here are a couple threads that might help you decide.

The above is true but the main reason i got the V over the wee strom is my wife or general manager thought the strom was ugly and like the orange colour of my V but please do not tell anyone she made the final call as it is a secret.

That was my major gripe about the Wee, the top heavy feel. When I was loaded down for touring there were times when it felt like if I got on uneven ground at a gas stop I'd end up in a pile...and I don't pack very heavy.
