Thanks Guys

Thank you all for your posts. Really looking forward to twisting the throttle on this little beast. I did stop by the dealer later today and it was outside so naturally had to ask them if I could start and feel the torque and listen to her music. Well all was good except it was not very loud. Some muffled rumble but hey, I'm half deaf anyway so for normal people with all their hearing it probably sounds OK. Compared to my Triumph Tiger 1050 with the Arrow Race Exhaust it is just down right quite. Well, we all know how to remedy that don't we! Will probably wait for first couple thousand miles and see what aftermarket exhausts pop up. Have seen the Remus and I think one other on our forum. Thinking Two Brothers will soon have one out too. I remember hearing one of the earlier model V's with Two Brothers installed. You could hear that deep v-twin rumble from half a mile away. Was music to my ears!:mrgreen:

I know some are not fond of the "beak," but I think the new DL has the best overall look of any of the big adventure tourers. I love the red version.

This is a picture thread, not a discussion thread. Please limit posts to pictures and comments on the pictures.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I am sure that as more members get the new bike it will turn into a great picture thread.

But, being a new bike there will be forum members who want to congratulate new owners, so there is bound to be discussion of the sort.

Just leave it alone and let it run its own course

Ride & Photos with Woody!

First long ride today on Woody. 200 + miles and some on the BRP. Photos taken at the Peaks of Otter. Will comment later on how much I like the bike. The more I ride the better it gets. One comment I will make, It handles like a dream at speeds that are way past legal:mrgreen: Some reviews say that it handles like it is on a rail and this is true. Very good clearance on the asphalt. Would have been scraping pegs on the tiger but so far no metal touching the asphalt. OK so several comments. It is hard not to get excited when talking about this new ride

Later

See post #21 for photos. Sorry about the mixup on my part. GW

Photos upside down

Anyone know what I did wrong with photos? Will try again and see what happens.

No Pictures?

OK, Greywolf, the only thing I see in your edit of my photos is five tiny little blue boxes with a question mark in them. Thinking something went wrong with your edit of my photos.

FastLane

Apparently my fault. Sorry. See post #21 for pix. GW

I tried it at another site to make sure. It didn't work there.

See https://www.stromtrooper.com/rules-fo...faq-howto.html on how to post full images instead of thumbnails. You list an interest in photography so you probably have access to a photo hosting site. You can also click the Community button at the top of the page to create a picture album here, upload photos to it, and post image tags from photos there.

Meanwhile, I uploaded the photos to my hosting site and added them below.
