    I just got to the 100k club on my 07 DL 650 and was wondering how many members on DL650, DL 1000 and soon DL1050’s have arrived. Perhaps a get together for the 100k riders in 2021 ?

    All V Stroms matter. Thinking a 100k theme but all others welcome. West Virginia could be a excellent choice of venue.

    115k on my 05 Wee. It's in "Thin Strom" trim these days. Probably 30k of the miles are offroad. Doing a full rebuild now in preparation for a trip to Baja and then maybe South America.

    .

    There's a 650 for sale over in the flea market with 119,000 miles on it, located in California. I'm at 61,000 miles on a 2012 650 so have a few years to go to get to a 100k.

    Impressive credentials. When you say full rebuild does this include engine or just a chassis rebuild? Keep us updated or those travels. Cheers
