Hey! Is there anybody out there?
My daughter and I bought an '08 DL650. Lowered it an inch, and then while I was riding it, (the same day she was starting her endorsement class) the engine seized up. That was in May. It took us clear to August to finally get the engine swapped with a same year, less mileage one, and now the bike is rock solid.
In fact, so solid, that I'm planning on taking it around the country this summer. 11,000 miles and hitting all four corners of the U.S. I'm doing the whole thing solo, but folks can jump in and ride a leg or more with me. If you're game, I'm starting in Neah Bay, WA, riding to Lubec, ME, then to Key West, FL by way of Deals Gap, then to San Diego, CA and up to Roseburg, OR or a bit further.
Post up if you want to know more, or if you may have a yard to pitch a tent in. I just need tent space, parking for the Wee and access to a restroom. Thanks all
