    She loves it.

    Her only gripe is that faded to pink in certain areas like the shoulders in fairly short order, but it does get used in the California sun a lot...(last picture taken at 122 degrees near Death Valley) For the price, she's a bit unhappy that, but prefers it to all others in her possesion (3 or 4 more)

    Thanks for the feedback. We live in Colorado and have more than 300+ days of sunshine a year so fading is a concern. I have a grey Tourmaster mesh jacket that started out black.

    She sold off two of her jackets and bought an Olympia 3 layer set up two years ago. Been a great jacket. Just think she is craving a new one since I just bought new gear. :lol3


    .....and we know the desert feeling. This was taken between San Diego and Havasu. Temp was around 116. ( sept of 09)

    This summer, my wife and I rode across Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky and back. It was her first trip riding her own motorcycle.

    Here is a picture of her looking for a cell phone signal while taking a break.

    Here is her motorcycle, loaded up for the trip.

    :clap:clap:clap

    My lady friend feels she takes too much flak for her bike-loading style. She took off this summer on an "ironbutt" with nothing other than a large bird-feeder strapped to the pillion. (It was for some ADV friends, and riding it there was cheaper than shipping.)

    Didn't take long before she wanted something with a bit more oomph. And a bit more Pink...

    The riding pictures are hard to get since I'm almost always on solo rides. If you see me say "Hi!"

    Of course you're welcome to post your own. I've never found it particularly easy to take pics of myself. I'd like to know your experiences on the DL650 as a woman. I ride one, and M'lady has looked at them. How does it perform as a woman's bike? Did you modify anything to make it fit?

    I love my Wee :D I'm 5'4" so I knew going in that I would be lowering it. When I picked it up I could get both toes down and it felt a little precarious - by the time I drove the 100km to the dealer that was going to lower it I felt fairly comfortable but went ahead and had it lowered 2". Now I can flatfoot it :clap Next spring I'm thinking I will take out the lowering links since I plan on some ambitious rides and would like that ground clearance back. At that time I'll probably shave the seat some and lower the pegs so my leg postion will stay the same. The ergos are perfect for me without any mods - the longest day I've put in is about 800km but I still felt good at the end of that day. I can pick it up although if the terrain is particularly rough that can be problematic and I wouldn't want to have to do it too many times in one day :lol3

    Did anyone notice that there's a strong contingent of redheads in this lot? Not casting aspersions on the other hair colors, just observing.
