    Wow! Your video is really cool!

    I AM a teacher. I teach Agriculture so I work with plants, animals, and do some building in the shop as well as FFA. It's interesting to say the least. Motorcycles have introduced me to the world of engine and other mechanics and I have to say that I really enjoy it. I have always enjoyed working with my hands.

    I enjoy my DL1000 but honestly, since I have picked up this 650, I like it better. There is nothing wrong with the DL1000 at all, I just like the stature and feel of the 650 for my personal taste. I have been really pleased with the stroms in general and I think it was a great choice when I got off the sport bikes.

    Anyway, nice to meet you!

    We are about the same in age me71,wife 70 in June.I have way too many old bikes and need to get back down to two or three.You have lots more dirt time than me as do most my older friends. Us old coots take one good trip at least once a year.Have been to Cumberland gap National park this year.Last year did Destion,FL in Feb..All the Trace and then to Jeff Davis Plantation. Colorado in 015 was the best trip yet for me.The big one off my bucket list was 012 DeadHorse,Alaska trip.I was only one of four with no elc,gear and about froze!28 and snow in June! Got it now but never use it unless over 40 miles and below 20. Hope to meet you on the road....Paul Logue
