I'm still setting it up. I did about 10 miles to make sure it was working and we've been locked up in the garage since.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A is just getting started.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

I just didn't like the orange very much. The gray grew on me in 2007 but I didn't give this one much time.

Here are a few quick pics. This one is a little dark and the bags are on backwards.



This shows the color better.



New dash layout.



If it ever stops raining, I'll get some outside.
