Just joined the site, picked up a 2013 DL650 Adv yesterday. Not new to riding and have worked as a MSF instructor in the past. Coming from Harley, BMW and many other bikes but thought I'd try something different.

First riding impressions. Bike handles really well, stock seat sucks ( nothing new and I actually think its the cover ), more than enough power, some vibration in the 4700 rpm area ( been talked to death already ), the stock windshield is in the middle position and I didn't get any buffeting but I'm going to move it up and see what happens. Overall seems to be a good bike but as with everything time will tell.

Bike will be used as an all around bike, touring some with a passenger
