Hola

Just dropping in to say hello. I just sold my 2012 DL650 and picked up a new 2013 800XC. $12.5K OTD for those that are in the market. A touring screen thrown in for good measure. Not too bad and I got the khaki green that I like.

Lovin the triple already!!

Nice, you got a better deal than I did.. Yeah, that triple is awesome. I broke mine in via the instructions on the tank sticker, with the occasional slight over rev. Need to scrub off the cylinder walls you know. Fast, smooth and the flat torque curve is perfect for the loose stuff.

Khaki Green here too, it's the gnarly one.

Yeah, its gnarly as fast as the black ones.

I love the torque of this bike. It is always there when you want it.

No doubt.

A mostly boring video taken by a buddy of mine on an FZ1, but he couldn't keep up with me :). One of my favorite roads...

Wow. That was fun. Nice work. Bet your nails are nice too with all that time to work on them. His captions cracked me up.

Hah. OEM scorpions. I am sad to be on knobbies right now, I'm sure I'll be back on sport tires in the spring... Then back on knobs for the long dirt ride in Sept.

Neither the Scorpions nor the Shinkos have provided any detectable wind/weather protection for me.
