I got one today

I bought a new 14 today from Romney Cycles. They really treated me right.

I'm going to see if I can scrub off half of the 500 miles to the first oil change now!

Congratulations!

I don't know where "bville" is but assume since you said Romney Cycles it's in the USA and hopefully somewhere in their area.. It is wonderful riding in that part of the USA! I am sure you will love the DL1000!

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Thanks very much. Bville is Berryville. I'm in Virginia, about 60 miles from Romney WV.

Got 100 miles in. More tomorrow.

You'll like it more and more as the engine and suspension break in. Do set the front & rear sag, about 40 mm, to suit your load riding weight, then set them again as the suspension frees up. Adjust the front compression & rebound damping, and the rear rebound, to your liking.

For ergos, I put on Adventuretech's peg lowering kit and mirror spacers, and SW-Motech's bar-backs. Adventuretech is selling Givi windscreens and Shad seats & luggage.

I've had mine just over a week. Only managed a little over 300 commuting miles, but I'm loving her so far!



Enjoy your new ride!

Can you make me smarter here? Where do I adjust this? I am not a short guy but find her very tall. I have the manual but find no "sag" adjustment.

Thanks!
