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...
..But not all you'll ever want.. Got a new DL1000 on 1/13/06 and I'm lovong it.
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.
#27 I think....
