Baby is Home!!!!!!

Just trucked my new 2014 DL1000A home from Delaware, L&D Suzuki. Worth the drive!!!

Shout out to Mike and all the guys there. They put the Rodstrom in, strapped it down with soft ties, and away I went. In and out in 30 minutes.

Here she's almost ready to be hauled at the dealers.


And, here she is safely tucked into the barn for the night.



The weather tomorrow and this weekend should be spectacular, so I'll be breaking her in and learning the feel of the new beast...

Took her for a spin up the street and back just to park her. The wind on the screen barely touched my hat!

I'm about as excited as when I got my first bike at 14 years old. I might even creep down in the garage tonight to see if she's doing well.. )

Thanks one and all for the advice to get her. I LOVE the red!!!

By the way she goes right into my 5.5 ft short bed really well!

Nice. Same color as mine. I took a 2 hour train ride from Boston to New Haven CT to pick mine up and rode it home.
