My First Ride on my New Toy!

Got my new Suzuki DL650 V-Strom today (Saturday). It was only about 6 degrees C outside and windy, but had to take it out for a drive. What an amazing bike! I've upgraded from a Honda 80 Aero scooter to this... quite the step up!  It took a few laps around the block to get used to the balance, the shifting, and the brakes, and then I was off!  This bike has all the power I will ever need, and perfect handling.
 
I hear it's going up to 9 degrees tomorrow...

Been,
I know how it feels to get a bike at the end of the riding season. I got my '05 DL650 Oct. 05, and got a great deal, but as of today, I only have 2200 miles on it. I know you'll have lots of fun once the weather warms up.

I had a XJ600 '92 before my DL. what a step up. I have wanted to do an Iron Butt ride on the XJ600 but several folks told me I was out of my mind. the DL is one that it can be done on and in comfort as well! That will put some miles on....

#27 I think....
