New Chicago DL650 Rider
I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Robert and I live in the north side if Chicago (Lincoln Square neighborhood). I just purchased a new 2012 DL650 (non adventure). I started riding about 3 years ago on a GZ250, so this is a big step up for me.
So far I love the bike. I took it for a ride on Sheridan Rd today north of the city (to Evanston and beyond) and it was fantastic.
I did lots of my own maintenance on my old bike (oil changes, spark plugs, valve clearance adjustments, etc.) and would love the opportunity to do maintenance collaboratively with other DL650 owners. I'm also up for day and weekend trips so if there are any upcoming trips and there is an opportunity to join please let me know.
I hope my fellow Chicago riders are enjoying the weather!
PS I'm really happy that I stumbled upon this forum. It's a brilliant resource.
