10,000 mile 2012 DL650 Club

I hit 10,000 miles on my 2012 DL650 (NewStrom.) I turned over 16,094 km yesterday.

I bought it March 12 2012 and am absolutely loving it more every day!

Anyone else up there yet?

..Tom

wow, I bought mine in April and only have 1000 on it ! I see you are in Canada, so I can't use our endless rain as an excuse so will just have to say that I have not had much time for it yet, other than short commutes to work. Tomorrow though, rain or shine, I am going on a five day ride through MT / ID !

I'm getting old. I only have 2000 miles and just cancelled the Oregon trip. I'm not feeling great and had a route choice between 100F temps or severe thunderstorms. I handled those last year on trips to Idaho and Maine and was not happy.

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
See http://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

I am just under 8k. My bike was down for three weeks (due to other higher priorites), putting a Rostra cruise control on and now it deosn't work. At all. Will trouble shoot at a later date.

Tom - you might need to rename this the Lonely Vee Club for a while - that's a wad of miles! I'm still under 15,000 miles on my pristine not-hardly-ridden-enough '07 Wee. BTW - do you own a car?

I do have a car although few people believe me as I really don't drive anything unless I absolutely don't have any other choice. My current car is a 2002 VW GTI VR6. It has about 298,000 km. I had a 2007 Porsche Boxster for three years or the mileage would be higher.

Picked mine up at end of March and have 4000km to date. I was out of the country for nearly month on vacations in April, but looking at a longer trip later this summer that will boost the mileage.
