Finally Purchased a 2013 Glee!!!

Picking up a used 2013 Glee Thursday or Friday. It is Blue with 2,600 miles, crash bars, skid plate and some auxiliary lights mounted to the crash bars. The guy purchased it new 7 months ago and is going back to a cruiser. I have been a member of this forum for a little while (no posts till now). I have enjoyed all the posts and support provided here. On the ride reports I notice a few folks ride in this area from time to time. I am looking forward to riding with some fellow stromtroopers that are located in and around southeast TN. The gravel/forest roads around this area are plentiful.

Congratulations, mine is 2013 as well, but white. I had a DL1000 - 2007 before.
The DL650 is as great bike, Suzuki did a great job renewing it.
I assume there is no differences in the bike between 2012 and 2015.
Enjoy.

Ride safe!

Congrats! Most of my family is in Cleveland/Ooltewah/Benton and I ride down there a few times per year. I'll let you know next time I'm down!

congratulations

His loss is your gain. I think you will really like the bike. I traded my Harley for this bike and I am totally satisfied.

Did the same. Shocking the difference.

I can only read and laugh at the "my wee has a vibration at 4800 rpm's" threads. Compared to the Harley it's like sleeping in a down bed covered with a down comforter on a quiet morning.

Sometimes at 70 MPH I wonder is the engine is even running!
