It's just a 2007 Suzuki DL-650 V-Strom. Since they made a 1000 and a 650, people dubbed the 650's Wee-Strom, or simply Wee.

This is what it looks like normally. I ride it to work often (180 miles round trip). I took the V-Strom stickers off of the fairing and put on the shark face. It's a road machine that only kind of does adventure style riding, but it was cheap and it's quite reliable.

MA BDR routes uploaded to the GPS.
Fresh brake fluid front and rear.
Fresh coolant in the system.

Here's a couple pictures of the kickstand foot I made:

Maybe its just the angle of the pic, but it looks like that sticks out kinda far and is low.
How have you not smashed that on rocks and stuff?

Thats a bit more time off pavement than my 80 hour motor school.
One morning I got to lead the "warm up" ride and they complained about this steep little dirt hill I made them ride down.
