    I'm not a good rider. I know better bikes exist, but I swear I love this bike.

    SD113,
    Nice pics. Looks like a fun and memorable ride.

    My DL makes me smile every ride, every mile. They are grand beasts.

    From a ride over the weekend. From Queens, NY up to Kent and Sharon, CT, then back into the rolling farms of Dutchess County, NY. Got caught in about 15 minutes of rain, nothing too bad. Made it back in time for lunch with the family on City Island, Bronx. Covered 220 miles in just over 6 hours.

    Thanks. I was originally looking for a Versys 650 and decided to expand my search to include the DL650. A great deal popped up on craigslist an hour or so from me and had to jump on it. Have had the bike for a little over a month and am loving it. Only part that sucks is blowing all my cash farkling it up.

    Planning to ride up to Montreal from NYC next June for the F1 Gran Prix. Hoping to hit a few of the nice roads in VT along the way.

    There's some great riding up in NW CT. With this weather I'm looking at spending either Thursday or Friday up that ways.

    Hey there Gary,,, i'm on a trip right now, VT, NH, ME, from metro Detroit area- so far I'd say New Hampshire is my fave. I do believe you can still get to Quebec from there! :D

    Pretty sure it's a stock color unless I've been duped. It's a 2016.

    I wasn't picky in choosing a color. Just got what ever was available in good condition at a good price. I guess I like it too.
