    2016 DL650A I bought as a leftover new in 2017. Now has about 10,000 miles on it - mostly commuting but one out-of-state trip and a few local rides. Just got the seat modified by Spencer so I'm looking forward to whether it enables more comfortable hours in the saddle. Mirrors are soon to be replaced with something that disturbs the wind a bit less. Will I take it to Alaska in 2019 or won't I - that's the question currently churning in my head.

    Decent cases but they leak. Couple hrs in rain and there will be a small puddle in the lower front area. I think around the rivets.
